    Copper 1871 Ten Dollar Dies Trial
    Judd-1173, PR67 Brown

    1871 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-1173, Pollock-1315, High R.7, PR67 Brown NGC. Struck from the regular dies for the 1871 Liberty Head eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. 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. This is a stunning Superb Gem proof that exhibits beautiful medium blue and violet toning around faded red mint color at the centers. The devices are boldly defined with satiny luster and the flawless fields are fully reflective.
    Ex: Stack's (2/1977), lot 1144; Lemus/Queller Collection (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1822.
