    1865 Gold Dollar, Struck in Copper
    Judd-438, PR66 Red and Brown

    1865 PG$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-438, Pollock-511, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Regular die trials for the 1865 gold dollar. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. According to the website: "Although these are described as regular die trial pieces in the standard references, it is more likely that the off-metal 'trials' of this year were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete gold and copper sets of this year containing the With Motto half eagle, eagle, and double eagle." About a dozen examples are known, but this is the finest example certified by the two major grading services (1/21). The fields are deeply reflective with die striations apparent upon close examination. Just a touch of bluish-brown patina mellows the otherwise cherry-red surfaces.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2005), lot 8308.
