1859 Gold Dollar, Struck in Copper
1859 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-256, Pollock-7010, Low R.7, PR64
Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to that used on
the regular issue 1859 gold dollar, but the letters are slightly
taller. The reverse is also similar to the regular issue, but the
letters in DOLLAR are taller. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
USPatterns.com notes, "The status of this piece is uncertain. It
looks similar but inferior in quality to Paquet's design of 1858,
J-222/J-223. Its relief is lower and appears less polished which
causes many people to believe it to be a private issue. Whatever
its status, an example was listed as lot 2974 in Woodward's March
1865 Bache I sale." This well-detailed Choice example exhibits no
mentionable surface flaws and both sides are attractively toned in
shades of sea-green and magenta. Population: 3 in 64 Brown, 0 finer
