    1873 Aluminum Ten Dollar
    Judd-1343, PR66
    Ultra Cameo

    1873 Ten Dollar, Judd-1343, Pollock-1487, High R.7, PR66Ultra Cameo NGC.
    The so-called regular dies trial of the regular issue ten dollar gold piece, but here struck in aluminum and with a reeded edge. These and the copper strikes were obviously not needed as true pattern coinage, but were struck by the Mint for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets. According to, "fewer than 4 of each are believed to exist." This is unquestionably the finest aluminum example known. The surfaces are bright and unoxidized. As usually seen on aluminum patterns, the fields and devices are noticeably contrasted. On this piece, the effect is profound with white devices set against the "black" depth of mirrors in the fields. An exceptional piece of aluminum coinage.
    From The Dornoch Collection.
