    Copper Transitional 1876 Double Eagle
    Judd-1491, PR62 Brown

    1876 $20 Twenty Dollar, Judd-1491, Pollock-1644, High R.7, PR62 Brown PCGS. The obverse is akin to the regular issue but with lower letters in LIBERTY and digits in the date compared to the Type Three obverse. The reverse is close to the Type Three reverse with spelled-out TWENTY DOLLARS but a larger heraldic eagle design than adopted. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This exquisitely wrought, extremely rare piece has a predominantly violet-brown obverse, while the reverse shows lighter golden-brown at the margins and elements of olive and mint in the centers. Minimal contact, though scattered hairlines in the fields preclude a finer designation. Given the High R.7 rarity ranking, it comes as little surprise that this is the finest (and only) Brown representative graded by PCGS (11/10).
    From The McCoy Family Collection of U.S. Patterns.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
