    1871 Gold Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1162, PR64 Cameo
    Possibly Unique

    1871 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1162, Pollock-1304, R.8, PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue Type Three gold dollar design. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. While USPatterns.com reports fewer than three examples of Judd-1162 known, we believe this pattern issue may be unique. It is the same example listed by Pollock, the one that appeared publicly in 2010. That was the first appearance of any Judd-1162 since 1979. Apparently, this is the second.

    Brilliant surfaces are frosty and contrasted. A touch of strike softness occurs over the middle portion of Liberty's curls and the highest points of the wreath elements. Otherwise razor-sharp.
    Ex: Almost certainly King Farouk; Palace Collections of Egypt Sale (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1865; First Walter Breen Gold Sale (Pine Tree Auctions, 3/1974), lot 434; Greater New York Numismatic Convention Sale (Paramount, 4/1977), lot 168); Oscar J.

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
