1865 Judd-438 Gold Dollar Pattern
1865 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-438, Pollock-511, R.7, PR66 Red and
Brown Cameo NGC.
PR66 Red and Brown Cameo
Copper Regular Dies Impression
Design. The regular issue design for the Type Three gold dollar struck in copper with a reeded edge.
Commentary. This numismatic delicacy is often classified as a dies trial, but was likely coined several years after the fact for sale to contemporary collectors. This is only the fifth auction appearance over the past 20 years, and this piece is superior to any previous offerings. The Newman example is the finest of only six NGC certified examples, and the only one designated as a Cameo. PCGS has certified five examples, none at the PR66 level and none with a Cameo designation. This is the finest surviving example of Judd-438.
Physical Description. This Premium Gem exhibits fully brilliant pinkish-orange mint color with mirrored fields around its lustrous devices. The design elements are boldly detailed. The presence of carbon flecks on both obverse and reverse attest to its untouched state.
Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29JN, PCGS# 70623)

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
