Pattern 1875 "Sailor Head" Five Dollar Struck in Copper

1875 $5 Sailor Head Five Dollar, Judd-1439, Pollock-1582, R.6-7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. William Barber's "Sailor Head" design with a left facing bust of Liberty on the obverse encircled by 13 stars around the periphery. Liberty is wearing a coronet inscribed LIBERTY, the date 1875 is at the lower border. An eagle that is very similar to that used on both the Trade Dollar and the Twenty Cent piece dominates the reverse motif. E PLURIBUS UNUM is in the field above the eagle's head, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll in the lower field, and the legend and denomination are at the borders. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. A mostly glossy-brown example, evidence of orange-red luster is still seen on the reverse. A boldly defined Gem with expertly preserved features.
From the Genaitis Collection of 1875 Coinage. (PCGS# 71746)
