    1867 Half Eagle in Copper
    Judd-599, PR66 Red and Brown

    1867 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-599, Pollock-665, High R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. As with many so-called dies trial strikings, the real story is that these pieces were more likely struck for sale to collectors as part of complete copper sets. USPatterns.com states that a half-dozen are known, but this seems unlikely. We have never offered one for sale, and two pieces were sold by Superior, one in 1990 and the last in 2007. Perhaps the half dozen pieces is more realistic when one factors in the double set once owned by T. Harrison Garrett and later stolen from the Iowa State Historical Museum. This is a magnificent example that has toned in rich shades of red, lime-green,, and purple. The strike is complete in all areas.
