    1869 Gold Dollar in Nickel
    Judd-768, PR64 Cameo
    Unique, Last Offered 44 Years Ago

    1869 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-768, Pollock-853, R.8, PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue gold dollar design for the year. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. Long-described as dies trials, these 1869 gold dollar patterns in copper, aluminum, and nickel were actually produced for inclusion in off-metal sets for the year.

    This unique Judd-768 representative, which was last offered publicly 44 years ago, is brilliant nickel-gray with moderately frosted devices. Both sides exhibit considerable planchet roughness and areas of incompleteness -- a testament to the Mint's difficulty in working with the hard nickel metal early on.
    Ex: William H. Woodin, exhibited at the 1914 ANS conference; Waldo C. Newcomer; King Farouk; Palace Collections of Egypt (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1825, ANA Sale (Stack's, 8/1976), lot 3634.
