Description

1876 Gold Dollar in Copper
Judd-1478, PR65 Red and Brown
The Finest Certified

1876 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1478, Pollock-1631, High R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The regular dies for the 1876 gold dollar, struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary. Only four or five of these pieces are thought to exist today, and this is only the third distinct specimen that we have handled in the past 20 years. The Newman example is the finest of only four that NGC has certified along with pieces graded PR63 Brown, PR64 Brown, and PR64 Red and Brown Cameo. PCGS has certified two submissions as PR63 Brown and one as PR64 Brown.

Physical Description. Both sides combine brilliant light orange mint color in the fields with olive-brown patina on the devices. A few other splashes of light brown and red toning are apparent. Carbon flecks are minimal and eye appeal is exceptional.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 3D63, PCGS# 71800)

Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
