    1872 Amazonian Ten Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1246, PR64 Brown

    1872 $10 Amazonian Ten Dollar, Judd-1246, Pollock-1388, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's "Amazonian Gold" design has a bust of Liberty facing left, her hair flowing behind her head and below the bust truncation, wearing a Phrygian cap inscribed Liberty. There are 13 stars along the border and the date is below the bust. The reverse is similar to the Amazonian silver design with an eagle, wings spread, grasping three arrows in its right claw, its left leg raised up to support a shield. A ribbon crosses the shield with the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST. Around is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and below is the denomination TEN DOL. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. About a dozen examples of this pattern are known and they are part of the six-coin Amazonian gold pattern issue that was struck in gold, aluminum, and copper. Some of the copper examples are gilt; however, this piece is in its original, untampered copper form. The obverse displays rich blue toning, while the reverse has mellowed several shades from the original copper luster. An interesting and significant Amazonian pattern.
