    1872 Amazonian Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1241, PR63 Brown

    1872 $5 Amazonian Five Dollar, Judd-1241, Pollock-1383, Low R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's so-called Amazonian patterns are one of the most famous of all pattern designs, certainly the best known of the "named" series of patterns. It features a head of Liberty facing left, headband inscribed LIBERTY, hair flowing. The reverse depicts Barber's standing eagle with talons holding a shield. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Judd-1241 represents the most accessible version of the Amazonian five dollar with reportedly more than a dozen pieces known. The gold Amazonian five dollar is unique, and only three examples are known in aluminum. This Select proof features a copper-orange obverse and a deeper brown reverse with blue and violet colors appearing on each side.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
