    Believed Unique

    (1857) $20 Double Eagle Reverse Die Trial, Judd-A1857-8, Pollock-3152, Unique (?), MS63 PCGS Secure. Undated (1857) hub trial or uniface splasher with a spread-wing eagle with arrows below, surrounded by rays. No border, denomination, or legend. Partial paper backing on the reverse. Struck in white metal. Believed to be unique. A few die polishing lines are seen through the rays. The surfaces otherwise are brighter in the center with slight darkening at the margin.
