    1874 Trade Dollar Pattern in Copper
    Judd-1363, PR63 Brown

    1874 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1363, Pollock-1508, R.8, PR63 Brown PCGS. Struck from regular Trade dollar dies, ostensibly as die trial pieces, in copper, with a reeded edge. notes they were also sold to collectors, as part of off-metal sets. Only four specimens are known, with one coin included in the J.C. Michelson Collection at the Connecticut State Library.

    The present coin is vividly toned in shades of copper-orange, crimson, and violet, with sharply detailed design elements and reflective fields under the patina. A number of hairlines in the fields are largely masked by the toning. This coin may once have graced the collections of King Farouk and Leonard J. Torok, MD. In the Torok lot description, it was noted this coin was struck on a thick planchet and weighed considerably more than the regular issue in copper. Examples of this design were also struck in aluminum (Judd-1364).
    Ex: Possibly King Farouk; Palace Collections of Egypt (Sotheby's, 2/1954), part of lot 1933; Leonard J. Torok, MD Collection (Bowers and Merena, 9/1998), lot 1469; the present consignor.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
