Copper Striking of the 1871 Gold Dollar
Judd-1161, PR64 Brown

1871 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1161, Pollock-1303, R.8, PR64 Brown NGC. Ex: Simpson. This extremely rare pattern is struck in copper from regular dies for the 1871 gold dollar. The Judd pattern reference lists it as R.8, calling it a die trial. USPatterns.com notes there are less than four specimens known, saying that the pieces were likely deliberately struck for sale to collectors rather than being a die trial of any sort. This piece has prooflike pinkish surfaces with a couple of dots of blue near the rims on each side. A small planchet indentation, as made, appears just below the Indian princess's chin. A few tiny abrasions dot the surfaces, none of them bothersome. Extremely rare. Census: 2 in 64 Brown, 1 finer (6/10). (PCGS# 61423)
