    1870 Three Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1029, PR62 Brown

    1870 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-1029, Pollock-1164, High R.7, PR62 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies used to coin three dollar gold pieces in 1870. While described years ago as dies trial strikings, we now know such pieces were struck by the Mint for sale to collectors. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. A small number of pieces were struck in copper, aluminum, and even one in nickel. About a half dozen copper pieces are believed extant. This is a deeply toned example that appears to have been cleaned at one time.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2A28, PCGS# 61277)
