    1872 Seated Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1210, PR66
    Red and Brown Cameo

    1872 $1 Dollar, Judd-1210, Pollock-1350, High R.7, PR66Red 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.
