1885 Liberty Eagle Struck in Aluminum as a Die Trial, Possibly Ex: King of Siam Sale and Auction '88

1885 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-1755, Pollock-1968, R.7-8, PR66 NGC. Die trial striking of the 1885 Eagle, struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Pollock lists only three examples of this rare die trial:

1. Ex: 1976 ANA Sale (Stack's, 8/76), lot 3693.

2. Ex: King of Siam Sale (Bowers & Merena, 10/87), lot 2259; Auction '88 (Superior, 10/88), lot 293. This appears to be the present example.

3. Ex: Palace Collection (Sotheby's, 1954), lot 2014.

This coin is lightly toned in irregular streaks of pale tan iridescence that are most readily evident over the right reverse. The devices are fully brought up in all areas. Identifiable by the presence of several raised planchet flaws (as produced) that look like bubbles in the right obverse field. (NGC ID# 2ALZ, PCGS# 62198)

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
