    1869 Gold Dollar in Copper
    Judd-766, PR65 Brown

    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 wreath ribbon.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29TJ, PCGS# 60997)
