Description:
1873 William Barber Five Dollar Pattern, Judd-1338
Amazonian Reverse
Ex: Farouk
1873 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1338, Pollock-1482, High R.7, PR64 Brown NGC. William Barber's design with Liberty facing right, dated 1873, with an obverse that is similar to his Trade dollar design. The reverse is taken from Barber's Amazonian design from the previous year. According to a Haseltine auction from 1876, only five pieces were struck in copper (this information courtesy of USPatterns.com). That same number is still available to collectors today but two are gilt, leaving only three copper pieces such as this one. This is a lovely pattern. Great liberties were taken with the term "Brown" on this example. The blue-brown patina that covers each side actually shows a significant amount of underlying red. A few light contact marks are scattered over both obverse and reverse, but none are worthy of individual mention.
Ex: Palace Sale-Farouk (Sotheby's, 2/1954); Stack's (12/1962); Lake Michigan and Springdale Collections (ANR, 6/2006), lot 1034.
