    1874 Three Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1369, PR63 Brown

    1874 $3 Three Dollars, Judd-1369, Pollock-1514, High R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Each side displays the regular design for an 1874 three dollar gold piece. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. It seems likely that only two or three examples of this three dollar copper pattern exist. A similar number are known in aluminum. They would have been manufactured for numismatic reasons rather than to test the dies, as has been suggested in the past.

    This rarity appears to be the first offering of a Judd-1369 coin in 15 years and the first we have handled at least since our Permanent Auction Archives were established in 1993. The obverse is deep brown while the reverse is more coppery or olive-gold with toning at the upper right border. Contact is minimal.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AAA, PCGS# 61673)
