    1872 Three Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1239, PR65 Cameo

    1872 $3 Judd-1239, Pollock-1381, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular three dollar dies of 1872. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Although the Judd reference calls this issue a dies trial, suggests "it is more likely that these trials were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets." The present Gem Cameo example is the finest of three Judd-1239 coins reported at PCGS and the only Cameo (although that population may include duplication)(1/21). Brilliant, reflective fields contrast against the frosted devices, while each side displays excellent strike sharpness. The plate coin for both and the Judd reference.
