    Aluminum 1868 Gold Dollar Dies Trial
    Judd-653, PR65, Ex: Pittman

    1868 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-653, Pollock-726, Low R.7, PR65 NGC. Ex: Pittman. The regular dies trial piece for the gold dollar. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. According to the USPatterns website: "These were deliberately struck to show how easily aluminum coined ..." Only a half-dozen pieces are believed known today and this is the first we have a record of offering at public auction. The surfaces are unspotted, and the brilliance is only tempered by slight hazy streakiness over both sides. A splendid example of this rarity.
    Ex: Private purchase from Empire Coin Co. (8/9/1961) for $125; Lenox Lohr (10/1956). (NGC ID# 29P6, PCGS# 60871)
