    1871 Ten Dollar Liberty in Aluminum
    Judd-1174, PR66 Cameo

    1871 $10 Liberty Eagle, Judd-1174, Pollock-1316, R.8, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular Liberty Head eagle dies for the year. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. These off-metal strikes were made for collectors and available in copper, aluminum, and nickel. About six pieces exist in copper, fewer than three are confirmed in aluminum, and one is known in nickel. We offered a PR66 Judd-1174 in July 2005 that appears to be distinct from this piece. Andrew Pollock lists another as ex: Pine Tree Auctions (3/1974), lot 434; Paramount (4/1977), lot 182. The plates for that piece make pedigree matching difficult. The Farouk Collection also contained an example that almost certainly corresponds to one of the previously mentioned listings, if not this one. Both sides are flashy and largely brilliant with dramatic Cameo contrast between the fields and devices. A trace of thin gold color is more noticeable on the obverse. A few tiny planchet voids occur on each side.
