    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.
