1872 Seated Dollar in Copper
1872 $1 Dollar, Judd-1210, Pollock-1350, High R.7, PR66★
Red and Brown Cameo NGC. The regular Seated Liberty With
Motto design, the motto boldly doubled as seen on regular issue
proofs dated 1872 and 1873. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
The 1872 copper dollars from the regular dies were not trial pieces
as often recorded, but instead were part of off-metal coinage sets
that the Mint marketed to contemporary collectors. The off-metal
pattern sets were coined in both copper and aluminum (Judd-1211).
It is doubtful that many sets were actually purchased by
collectors, as only two examples of the copper dollar are known
today. This is a rarely offered color designation as well as a rare
pattern. Only NGC designates Red and Brown Cameo proofs, and there
are few of them. Actually, this piece is very close to full Red
designation. Even red color is seen over each side, it is just the
slightest bit mellowed off of full radiance. Fully struck, deeply
mirrored, and strongly contrasted on each side.
