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).
