Description

Desirable 1870 Double Eagle in Aluminum, PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS

1870 $20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-1039, Pollock-1174, High R.7, PR66 Deep Cameo PCGS. A very small number of 1870 proof sets, from the Cent through the Double Eagle, were struck in aluminum, presumably as an offering to well placed collectors of the day. This rare dies trial piece is struck from regular issue dies in aluminum with a reeded edge. The strike is bold although a hint of softness is noted northeast of the shield. Nearly immaculate, a couple of fully retained laminations of mint origin do not distract. An interesting mint-made diagnostic is a curly raised line near the B in LIBERTY, apparently a sturdy thread was struck into the obverse die and left a raised imprint on those pieces struck thereafter. Once this spectacular specimen has left the auction block, another example of Judd-1039 of similar quality may not surface again for many years. Population: 2 in 66, none finer (9/04).(#61288) (NGC ID# 2A2E, PCGS# 61288)
