Description

Extremely Rare 1872 Copper Dollar
Judd-1210, Regular Dies, PR65 Brown

1872 $1 Dollar, Judd-1210, Pollock-1350, R.8, PR65 Brown NGC.
Design.
The regular Seated Liberty With Motto design, the motto boldly doubled as seen on regular issue proofs dated 1872 and 1873. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
The 1872 copper dollars from the regular dies were not trial pieces as often recorded, but instead were part of off-metal coinage sets that the Mint marketed to contemporary collectors. The off-metal pattern sets were coined in both copper and aluminum (Judd-1211).

The complete coinage set in copper contained the cent (Judd-1179), two cent (Judd-1183), coronet three cent (Judd-1185), trime (Judd-1187), five cent (Judd-1189), half dime (Judd-1191), dime (Judd-1193), quarter (Judd-1198), half dollar (Judd-1203), dollar (Judd-1210), gold dollar (Judd-1227), quarter eagle (Judd-1233), three dollar (Judd-1238), half eagle (Judd-1243), eagle (Judd-1248), and double eagle (Judd-1253).

It is doubtful that many sets were actually purchased by collectors, as only two or three examples of the copper dollar are known today. We are aware of only five auction appearances over the past 54 years, and representing at the most only three different coins.

In addition to the Heritage and Stack's auctions where this specimen appeared, either the same or another example was offered in Bolender's 11/1959 sale, reappearing in Merkin's 9/1968 sale, and an example appeared in the King Farouk sale in 1954.

Physical Description.
This glittering, boldly defined proof has fully mirrored fields around modestly lustrous devices. Both sides are medium to dark brown, with considerable orange mint color remaining beneath the iridescent toning. NGC Census: This is the only Judd-1210 certified in any grade or designation. PCGS Population: A single coin grading PR64 Brown (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Heritage (12/1988), lot 1896; Stack's (9/1992), lot 751.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
