Description

    1861 Clark, Gruber Twenty Dollar Pattern, MS62
    Copper, Gilt

    1861 $20 Clark, Gruber $20 Copper Die Trial, Gilt MS62 NGC. K-12c, R.6. Struck from the same dies used to coin the regular K-8 1861 twenty, but this is a die trial piece struck in copper then gilt at a later time. The gilt occurred after the piece received small marks near Liberty's profile. The surfaces are evenly granular, due to the method used to gilt the coin. It is interesting that so many off-metal Clark, Gruber & Co. examples have survived. Perhaps they were saved by the firm to compare against copy die counterfeits offered for redemption in specie. (NGC ID# ANM5, PCGS# 10153)

    I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
