    1861 Clark, Gruber Two and a Half
    Copper Die Trial, K-9a, MS62

    1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber $2 1/2 Copper Die Trial MS62 Brown NGC. K-9a. Designated by NGC as K-9, but that is a broadstruck variety. The K-9a subvariety was struck with a reeded edge collar die. The edge of the present die trial is concealed by the NGC holder, but it has a raised rim and does not exhibit the spreading toward the rim consistent with a broadstrike. A well struck chocolate-brown example with sea-green and rose-red undertones. A loupe reveals a thin mark on the left obverse field near star 4. A die crack between the LAR in CLARK indicates that the piece was struck after at least a portion of the gold issue (K-5).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# ANLL, PCGS# 10150)
