    1869 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-775, PR64 Brown

    1869 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-775, Pollock-861, High R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The dies are the regular-issue Liberty Head half eagle design of the year. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. While the Judd reference refers to these as regular die-trials pieces, suggests they more than likely were produced for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets. About a half-dozen pieces are known in copper. Examples were also struck in aluminum and there is a single piece in nickel. The original mint red has mellowed several shades deeper on the reverse than the obverse, and there is a peculiar "stain" on the lower reverse; however, significant mint red survives on the obverse.
