    1870 Gold Dollar in Nickel
    Judd-1025, PR64+
    Believed to be Unique

    1870 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1025, Pollock-1160, R.8, PR64+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue gold dollar dies for the year 1870. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. This singular Judd-1025 representative is the only one known. Similar 1870 gold dollar patterns exist in copper (four of five pieces believed extant) and aluminum (two or three believed extant). This near-Gem rarity is somewhat irregularly struck on a highly porous planchet. RI in AMERICA is altogether missing. Brilliant and partially contrasted.
    Ex: William H. Woodin, exhibited at the 1914 ANS conference; Waldo C. Newcomer; unknown intermediaries; ANA Auction (New England Rare Coin Galleries, 8/1979), lot 1323.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
