    1870 Gold Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1023, PR65 Brown
    Only 4 or 5 Pieces Believed Known

    1870 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1023, Pollock-1158, High R.7, PR65 Brown NGC. Regular dies trial issue struck from the regular 1870 gold dollar dies. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. While termed a dies trial issue, it is more likely these pieces were struck for sale to collectors as part of off-metal sets. Only four or five pieces are believed known. While this example is called Brown, it still retains much underlying red which is most apparent when the mirrored fields are flashed beneath a light. A few minor lint marks are scattered over each side, struck into the coin after the dies were wiped and static electricity caused lint to adhere to the dies.
