    Extremely Rare 1867 Pattern Double Eagle

    1867 $20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-604, Pollock-669, High R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Struck from the regular double eagle dies of 1867, representing the Type Two design with motto on the reverse, only coined in copper or bronze rather than the standard gold. Only about five or six of these are known, and it is most likely that they were originally sold to collectors, rather than for die trial purposes. Similar issues from this era did not appear for sale at public auction until several years after the date displayed on the coins, thus the conclusion that they were not die trials produced at the time suggested by the physical coin. This is a splendid greenish-brown Gem with mirrored fields and just a trace of cameo contrast. The reverse has tan and golden brown intermingled with sea-green color. A splendid Gem proof example.(#60816) (PCGS# 60816)
