Announcement: Sunday & Tuesday Internet Coin Auctions and Weekly World and Ancient Coin Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Internet Coin Auctions and World and Ancient Coin Auctions are closing with live, online auctions on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the Internet Coin Auction that ends Sunday, September 21st and the World and Ancient Coin Auction that ends on Thursday, September 25th. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in live auctions beginning at 8:00 PM CT. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

Description:
1885 Eagle Pattern Struck in Aluminum
Judd-1755, PR66, Likely Only Two Surviving
1885 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-1755, Pollock-1968, R.8, PR66 NGC. This pattern is struck in aluminum with a reeded edge from the regular ten dollar eagle dies of 1885. Examples of the other gold denominations of 1885 are also known in aluminum, likely made for presentation purposes, or perhaps on special order from collectors of the day.
The present piece is believed to be one of just two known aluminum examples surviving, although Andrew Pollock lists three in his pattern reference. This example has appeared in four previous Heritage auctions, and previously in the King of Siam sale and Auction '88, as detailed. Pollock also recorded an example in the 1976 ANA sale (Stack's, 8/1976, lot 3693) and one in the King Farouk sale (Sotheby's, 2/1954, lot 2014). The Farouk specimen is likely the same as this piece or the 1976 ANA coin.
This Premium Gem proof is lightly and irregularly toned in pale tan, evident over the right reverse. The devices are fully brought up throughout. A fully retained mint lamination appears over star 12. In addition to this coin, NGC has also certified a PR64 Cameo and a PR65 Cameo, both likely representing just one coin. Census: 1 in PR66, none finer (11/10).
Ex: King of Siam Sale (Bowers and Merena, 10/1987), lot 2259; Auction '88 (Superior, 10/1988), lot 293; Heritage (6/2002), lot 7178; Heritage (11/2003), lot 11247; Heritage (1/2004), lot 2264; Joseph C. Thomas Collection (Heritage, 4/2009), lot 2819.
