    1872 Amazonian Three Dollar, Gilt Copper
    Judd-1236, PR64

    1872 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-1236, Pollock-1378, High R.6, Gilt, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's "Amazonian" design with Liberty on the obverse wearing a Phrygian Cap inscribed LIBERTY, thirteen stars around, and the date below. The reverse has a spread-winged eagle with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and THREE DOL. around the margin. The celebrated "Amazonian" design has a reverse similar to William Barber's quarter, half dollar, and dollar patterns of this year. It is the only uniform design ever made for all six gold denominations, and is also the only pattern three dollar gold design. Struck in copper with a reeded edge and subsequently gilt. This is a pleasing specimen with uniform wheat-gold color. The only identifiers are a curly lint mark (as made) near the base of Liberty's neck and a tiny red freckle near the U in UNITED.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3475.
