    1872 Amazonian Dollar Pattern in Copper, R.7
    Judd-1206, PR65 Red and Brown

    1872 $1 Amazonian Dollar, Judd-1206, Pollock-1346, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. The obverse exhibits a seated figure of Liberty, her right hand above the head of an eagle, her left forearm resting on top of a shield, and her left hand holding a sword. Around, 13 stars with the date below. The reverse has an eagle with spread wings, clutching three arrows in its right claw, its left leg raised up with the talon supporting a shield with an olive branch in front. A scroll across the shield is inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Around is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA with the denomination HALF DOL below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
    This is one of several different designs the depict a full view of Liberty in a seated position, obviously intended to be an answer to Christian Gobrecht's design that had been in use since 1836. Although several different "Seated Liberty" designs were prepared, the initial design by Gobrecht remained in use until introduction of the Morgan dollar in 1878 and the Barber series of silver coins in 1892.
    Both sides of this Gem have excellent contrast with fully mirrored fields visible beneath gold, blue, and sea-green toning. This pattern variety is an important rarity with just nine examples confirmed to exist, including two museum pieces, in the Durham Western Heritage Museum and the Connecticut State Library. This example has a tiny edge mark at 2:45, now mostly hidden by the holder. It has a pedigree back to the Andrew Zabriskie Collection.
    Ex: Andrew Zabriskie; Major Lenox Lohr; Bowers and Ruddy (11/1976), lot 998; Fairfield Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/1977), lot 61.
