1864 Pattern Dollar. Copper, Reeded Edge. Judd-397. Pollock-465 Low Rarity 7. NGC graded Proof 65 Brown Cameo. Lovely blue and brown toning. Great looking coin. A pleasing coin to behold, and almost certainly among the very best preserved Gem Proofs of the variety. Sleek brown color with intense blue, almost turquoise tinted patina on either side; surfaces untrammeled by significant spotting and looking much like it must have when it was prized by some careful collector of the 1870s. The mirrors are nice and reflective, the devices frosted against the mirror field, and the visual appeal is quite pleasing. This is an exceptional Proof 65 specimen! About a dozen examples are known, mainly in slightly lower grades. A highlight for any Pattern collection. Pop 1; none finer at NGC in Brown Cameo .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.

Realized $12,075
