Copper 1865 Three Dollar Dies Trial
Judd-441, PR66 Brown

1865 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-441, Pollock-516, Low R.7, PR66 Brown NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. The obverse is from the same die used to coin regular proofs in 1872. The reverse follows the regular-issue three dollar format, but the date slants upward and to the right. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
Because the obverse die was first used in 1872, it is believed that all examples of this issue are restrikes, created for sale to collectors in the 1870s. USPatterns.com estimates a population of about six pieces extant. One example has been silver-plated; another is gilt. Yet another example is impounded in the Connecticut State Library. The Harry W. Bass, Jr. Research Foundation owns another. The number of available specimens must be extremely small.
The devices are strongly impressed, with fine detail in the hair and feathers. Iridescent cherry-red and brown-lilac toning cover the flawless surfaces.
Ex: Auction '79 (Superior, 7/1979), lot 1624; Stack's private treaty transaction; Lemus/Queller Collection (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1645, where it brought $14,950. (NGC ID# 29JS, PCGS# 60626)

This is a most satisfied customer's testimonial of a true gentleman in today's era. It is rare that one encounters through the course of life a person which one has read in childhood' s classics or seen in movies of old.
