    Rare Aluminum 1872 Three Dollar, Judd-1239

    1872 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-1239, Pollock-1381, R.7, PR64 PCGS. From regular 1872 Three Dollar dies, but struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Such off-metal pieces are often referred to as regular die trials, but since similar aluminum patterns exist for all other circulating denominations from 1872, it is more likely that these pieces were struck with the intention of sales to well-connected collectors or dealers. A well struck specimen that has silver-gray color and attractive cameo contrast. Small planchet flaws (as made) are noted at 11 o'clock and near Liberty's chin. The dies are slightly rotated clockwise. Judd-1239 is extremely rare. The combined forces of NGC and PCGS have certified only three examples, all in the PR64 grade. (#61511) (PCGS# 61511)
