    1885 Snowden Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1748, PR67 Red and Brown

    Experimental Lettered Edge Variant

    1885 $1 Snowden Dollar, Judd-1748, Pollock-1960, R.6, PR67 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck in copper from regular issue obverse and reverse dies. The edge is lettered instead of reeded, and displays E PLURIBUS UNUM in raised letters. Perhaps 15 to 20 of these are known in copper with a similar quantity in silver, and just under a dozen in aluminum. Once thought to be an impossible dream, segmented collars to create raised edge lettering were developed in the late 19th century. Roger Burdette relates the important story at the USPatterns.com website. This Superb Gem proof has vibrant blue and lilac toning with splashes of orange mint color. PCGS Population: 3 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2ALU, PCGS# 72190)

    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.
