    Sparkling 1876 Five Dollar Struck in Copper
    Judd-1484, PR65 Red and Brown
    R.8, Possibly Only Two Known

    1876 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1484, Pollock-1637, R.8, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. This copper five dollar pattern is struck from the regular dies for the 1876 half eagle. Judd lists as a die trial; USPatterns.com calls it a pattern likely deliberately struck for sale to collectors. This piece is one of two certified at NGC, both PR65 Red and Brown (or one coin was submitted twice), and there are no other Judd-1484s certified in any grade at NGC. PCGS has certified a single PR65 Red and Brown, although we believe that to be the Harry W. Bass, Jr. specimen, and a different example as far as we can ascertain. This may nonetheless be one of only two examples in existence, a conclusion that USPatterns.com supports as well. This is a attractive, sparkling Gem with lots of field-device contrast and plenty of mint orange-red remaining in the fields on both sides, punctuated by dollops of cobalt-blue. The Centennial dating only increases the appeal, now as well as it did when made. (NGC ID# 2ADB, PCGS# 71806)
