Commentary. The design for Judd-1652 was also used to strike examples in silver or goloid composition (Judd-1651) and aluminum (Judd-1653)in 1880. The design was used the previous year to also strike Judd-1626 through Judd-1630. The reverse is one of the few designs in American coinage to express the denomination in two different ways. estimates the surviving population of Judd-1652 at a little more than a dozen examples. That total includes a specimen in the Byron Reed Collection in the Durham Western Heritage Museum and another in the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Research Foundation.

Physical Description. This magnificent Superb Gem offers blazing original red surfaces, with deeply mirrored fields and no trace of carbon. Razor-sharp definition is evident on all design elements, including star center lines and hair strands. The frosty devices stand out against the reflective fields with definite elements of contrast. The eye appeal is extraordinary. This coin is the single finest certified at either of the leading grading services (3/13).
