    1876 Three Dollar in Gilt Aluminum
    Judd-1483, PR63

    1876 $3 Three Dollar, Judd-1483, Pollock-1636, Gilt, R.8, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular three dollar dies for the year. Struck in aluminum and gilted with a reeded edge. The 1876 is a particularly popular date given that only 45 proofs and no circulation strikes were produced. USPatterns.com reports only one of two of each in copper and aluminum for the 1876 three dollar "dies trial." Saul Teichman writes: "I believe all of Pollock's listings for the aluminum piece represent the same piece. It is unknown if either of these exist in an ungilted state." This example does not appear to match the Stack's 1971 ANA sale coin, the first representative listed on Pollock's census. Plate quality makes it challenging to determine whether the Superior 1972 and Superior 1976 examples are a match. Light greenish-gold surfaces exhibit a trace of field reflectivity. Fully struck with an identifying dark spot in the dentils at 6 o'clock on the reverse.
    Ex: Great Collections (3/2013), lot 104346.
