These patterns were distributed as part of complete sets, half dime through dollar. About a dozen examples are known, according to USPatterns.com. The ANS and Durham Western Heritage Museum each have one in their holdings. Others have turned up in the Col. Green and King Farouk collections. This impressive Select Uncirculated proof with Deep Cameo contrast is being offered as part of one of the greatest pattern collections ever assembled and can be traced back to the collection of Dr. J. Hewitt Judd, author of the standard reference on United States pattern, experimental, and trial coinage. Rings of golden-russet and cobalt-blue toning surround the borders, while the centers are considerably lighter. Eye appeal is phenomenal for this Deep Cameo proof.
