    1875 Trade Dollar Die Trials Striking in Copper
    The Finest of Only Four Pieces Known
    Judd-1430, PR66 Red and Brown

    1875 T$1 Trade Dollar, Judd-1430, Pollock-1573, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Regular dies trial striking of the adopted Trade dollar design. Type One Reverse, with the berry under the eagle's right (facing) claw. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. With the presence of two examples of the Judd-1430 in this auction, it is now known that at least four examples are known in copper and two or three in aluminum. The other two known examples are a second piece in Bob Simpson's collection, and another is in the Wyoming Collection which is Ex: 1972 ANA.
    While the surfaces have mellowed considerably, there is considerable mint red that remains just beneath the brown seen over most of each side. The devices on the obverse are especially notable with a bright outline of mint red around the figure of Liberty. This piece is identifiable by a short, curved lint mark in the obverse field just below the stem in Liberty's outstretched hand. This is an exceptionally well-preserved, high grade Trade dollar die trials striking.
    There are only three examples graded Red and Brown of this die trials, this one, the lot above, and a PR65 CAC (While we don't know, we might guess that is the coin that Bob Simpson retained for his pattern collection.) There is also one PR65 Red example, rounding out all the known examples.
    Ex: Frank Stirling Collection (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1438, where it realized $48,875.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 2ABR, PCGS# 71737)
