The Finest of Only Four Pieces Known
Judd-1430, PR66 Red and Brown
While the surfaces have mellowed considerably, there is considerable mint red that remains just beneath the brown seen over most of each side. The devices on the obverse are especially notable with a bright outline of mint red around the figure of Liberty. This piece is identifiable by a short, curved lint mark in the obverse field just below the stem in Liberty's outstretched hand. This is an exceptionally well-preserved, high grade Trade dollar die trials striking.
There are only three examples graded Red and Brown of this die trials, this one, the lot above, and a PR65 CAC (While we don't know, we might guess that is the coin that Bob Simpson retained for his pattern collection.) There is also one PR65 Red example, rounding out all the known examples.
Ex: Frank Stirling Collection (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1438, where it realized $48,875.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 71737)
