    1872 Amazonian Gold Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1226, PR66+ Cameo
    Ex: Farouk-Sieck

    1872 $1 Amazonian Gold Dollar, Judd-1226, Pollock-1368, R.8, PR66+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's "Amazonian" design. Liberty faces left and wears a Phrygian cap inscribed LIBERTY, with thirteen stars around and the date 1872 below. The reverse has an eagle with open wings holding three arrows in its right talon and supporting a shield with its left. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around, and the denomination ONE DOL. is below. A scroll crossing the shield is inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Struck in gold (unique), copper, and aluminum; only three pieces are known in aluminum. This is a magnificent example of what is arguably the most widely recognized pattern design. The fields are deeply mirrored and show pronounced die striations. The devices are nicely frosted and give the piece a stark cameo contrast.
