1870 Three Dollar in Aluminum
1870 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-1030, Pollock-1166, High R.7, PR65+
Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies used to coin
three dollar gold pieces in 1870. Struck in aluminum with a reeded
edge. As with most dies trial strikings that term should be
prefaced with "so-called" since most were deliberately produced in
various metals for sale by the Mint to collectors. Pieces are known
in copper, aluminum, and nickel. USPatterns.com estimates " ...
only 3 or fewer believed to exist ... " Our archives record three
appearances, but we are uncertain if any of those are duplicates.
The fields are deeply mirrored and provide a "black" background for
the obviously frosted devices. Finest known example.
