    Important 1871 Judd-1173 Liberty Eagle in Copper

    1871 $10 Liberty Head Eagle, Judd-1173, Pollock-1315, High R.7, PR63 Brown NGC. The regular dies for the 1871 Liberty Head eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is a sharply struck proof with reflective surfaces and deep orange-brown color on both sides. It is possible that the obverse may have been lightly polished in the past, but it has an excellent appearance. Only five or six of these pieces exist today, an even smaller number than the actual gold proof eagles of the year. All six gold denominations were also struck in copper, aluminum, and nickel. It is believed that just one of each survive in nickel, two or three each in aluminum, and four to six each in copper. A complete 1871 gold proof set representing all the different metals, 24 coins in all, would be a remarkable and nearly impossible challenge.
