    1871 Twenty Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1177, PR67 Cameo

    1871 $20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-1177, Pollock-1319, High R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. Struck from the regular proof dies for the twenty dollar gold piece. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. These pieces were actually struck for sale to contemporary collectors as part of complete off-metal sets. Only two or three pieces are believed known in aluminum. The "common" variety are the half-dozen pieces known in copper. There is also a curiosity struck in nickel that has not been seen since 1977. We have never handled an aluminum piece, and the only record we have is from an ANR sale in 2006 (not this coin). As one would expect from an aluminum strike, the fields are deeply mirrored and establish a "black" background for the frosted devices. Exceptional quality and rarity.
