    R.8 1872 Ten Dollar Pattern, Judd-1248
    PR64 Brown, Likely Three Existing

    1872 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-1248, Pollock-1390, R.8, PR64 Brown NGC. Pattern collector focus for the year 1872 usually lands on the famous and rare Amazonian pattern designs. The 1872 Amazonian patterns in silver (quarter, half dollar, and dollar, Judd-1195, 1200, and 1205, respectively) are occasionally seen, although the six known gold patterns are each unique (one dollar, quarter eagle, three dollar, half eagle, eagle, double eagle, Judd-1224, 1230, 1235, 1240, 1245, and 1250, in order) and part of the single known Amazonian set. Of course, copper and aluminum examples of the high-denomination Amazonian patterns also exist (sometimes found gilt, for one reason or another).
    The present Judd-1248 is the only ten dollar pattern of the year that does not bear the Amazonian design; rather, it is a trial piece from the regular 1872 eagle dies, struck in copper with a reeded edge. Examples were also struck in aluminum (Judd-1249). The reason for the striking of these ten dollar patterns is unknown. USPatterns.com suggests, rather formulaically, that the pieces may have been deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets, and estimates that three or less examples each survive of both the copper and aluminum strikings.
    Plate matching reveals that this is undoubtedly the same piece that appeared in a Stack's 2007 auction, then graded PR64 Brown as well. Another Stack's 1997 auction offered a Judd-1248, which may or may not be the same coin. This example shows medium almond-tan surfaces with some deeper hues of aqua, rose, and jade-green under a light. The strike is complete throughout, and the eye appeal is excellent. NGC Census: 1 in PR64 Brown; 1 PR67 Cameo Red and Brown. PCGS Population: 1 PR62 Brown (11/10).
    Ex: possibly Stack's (10/1997); Stack's (9/2007), lot 4081.
