    1860 Half Eagle in Copper
    Judd-A1860-6, MS64 Brown
    Unique Reverse Layout Piece

    1860 DT$5 Half Eagle Die Trial, Judd-A1860-6, Pollock-3254, R.8, MS64 Brown PCGS. CAC Ex: Judd Plate-Simpson. The Judd reference describes this unique piece as a "reverse hand-punched trial illustrating peripheral legends for the Judd-271 half eagle, but with different spacing." The lettering suggests the work of assistant engraver Anthony C. Paquet. The statutory legend and denomination are laid out in reverse with a partial guide line. The letter U was entered inside the guide line before the engraver elected a more proper placement. Unabraded matte surfaces exhibit light brown patina with hints of orange mint color in a few of the letters.
