1869 Gold Dollar in Copper
1869 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-766, Pollock-851, High R.7, PR65
Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular-issue dies in
copper with a reeded edge. This pattern gold dollar was presumably
sold as part of a complete copper denomination set of 1869 coinage.
About six examples are thought to exist, plus another half dozen in
aluminum. A single piece in nickel is also reported. Glossy light
brown surfaces feature ice-blue accents, especially on the reverse.
Flashy fields surround expectedly pinpoint-sharp devices. Only the
first feather on Liberty's headdress shows signs of lapping. A
couple of tiny lint marks are noted, including one below the left
