Description:
Historic Clark, Gruber Twenty Dollar
Die Trial Struck in Copper, K-12c, VF20
1861 $20 Clark, Gruber $20 Copper Die Trial VF20 NGC. K-12c, R.6. There are only six stars in front of Liberty, with the seventh perched directly over the high point of the coronet she wears. On the reverse, the V in DENVER is normal as on the gold pieces, rather than defective as on the other reverse known for this copper issue. This historic coin has seen moderate wear, although due to its copper content we doubt it passed as a fifty dollar gold piece. Perhaps it was carried as a pocket by some old-timer as a remnant of the Pike's Peak Gold Rush? The well-preserved medium-brown surfaces show remarkably few signs of contact, save for a single small scrape under the eagle's left (facing) wing. Listed as a gold issue on page 378 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10153)
