1872 $10 Amazonian Ten Dollar, Judd-1247, Pollock-1389, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's "Amazonian Gold" design has a bust of Liberty facing left, her hair flowing behind her head and below the bust truncation, wearing a Phrygian cap inscribed Liberty. There are 13 stars along the border and the date is below the bust. The reverse is similar to the Amazonian silver design with an eagle, wings spread, grasping three arrows in its right claw, its left leg raised up to support a shield. A ribbon crosses the shield with the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST. Around is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and below is the denomination TEN DOL. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Only three of pieces are known in aluminum. As expected from an aluminum pattern, the fields are deeply mirrored and set up a "black" background for the frosted devices. Die striations are easily seen in the fields on each side. A couple of pinprick marks in the area of the date help identify the pedigree of this important pattern.
Ex: Kreisberg-Schulman (2/1960); John J. Pittman; Abe Kosoff.
