1873 Ten Dollar in Copper
1873 $10 Ten Dollars, Judd-1342, Pollock-1486, R.8, PR65 Brown
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse are both the same
design used to strike regular-issue 1873 Closed 3 eagles. Struck in
copper with a reeded edge. This is an exceptionally rare pattern,
one of just three or four believed to exist, including pieces that
are gilt. A similar number are known in aluminum. The Brown
designation for this Gem is somewhat misleading. Both sides feature
deep violet patina with colorful accents of pale orange, lilac,
blue, and lime-green toning that all blend together. A couple of
tiny carbon spots are seen.
Judd-1342, PR65 Brown
Ex: Jones Beach Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1507.
