Description

Copper Striking of the 1871 Five Dollar
Judd-1170, PR65 Red and Brown

1871 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1170, Pollock-1312, High R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. The regular dies for the 1871 Liberty half eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. It is Saul Teichman's opinion, as expressed on the USPatterns.com website, that "it is more than likely that the off-metal 'trials' of this year were deliberately struck for sale to collectors." Still, only half a dozen are believed to exist today. This piece has rich red surfaces that have mellowed only slightly, and are enhanced by the brightly mirrored proof fields.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Three. (PCGS# 71433)
