    1872 Amazonian Gold Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1226, PR67 Cameo
    Just Three Examples Known

    1872 $1 Amazonian Gold Dollar, Judd-1226, Pollock-1368, R.8, PR67 Cameo PCGS. 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. As is often the case with aluminum patterns, the devices are icy and contrast with the reflective fields. The well-struck surfaces show only inconsequential imperfections. Per USPatterns.com, only three examples of Judd-1226 are confirmed.
    Ex: Chicago ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/1999), lot 7773.
