    1867 Double Eagle in Copper
    Judd-604, PR65+ Brown

    1867 $20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-604, Pollock-669, High R.7, PR65+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. From regular issue dies with the expected reeded edge, but struck in copper instead of gold. Similar copper specimens exist for other denominations of the year, and it is likely that a few sets were assembled by the mint as delicacies for favored collectors of the day. Only a half dozen pieces are known. This is a beautifully toned copper dies trial. The fields are deeply mirrored and serve to brighten the pastel colors on the obverse, while the reverse shows deeper shadings of crimson, golden-rose, and blue. Fully struck.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29MW, PCGS# 60816)
