    1875 Three Dollar Struck in Gilt Copper
    Judd-1436 Gilt, PR64

    1875 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-1436, Pollock-1579, R.7, PR64 Gilt NGC. CAC. A regular dies trial piece for the three dollar gold piece. Struck in copper and gilt with a reeded edge. Saul Teichman notes that: "The die trials of this date often have been gilded due to the extreme rarity of its gold counterpart." He goes on to explain, "Although these are described as regular die trials pieces in the standard references, it is more likely that the off-metal 'trials' of this year were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets." Only four or five copper pieces were struck, with an unknown number (undoubtedly small) that were gilt. This date is also known in aluminum. This piece retains much of the underlying brightness of the copper base, rendering the surfaces bright and closely resembling a gold coin. The gilt has only chipped away slightly in one place, just above the M in AMERICA.
