1865 Pattern Dollar. Copper, reeded edge. J-435, Rarity-7. NGC graded Proof 65 Red & Brown. The plate coin for the variety in the newest (8th) edition of Judd. This is the finest example graded by NGC. From a recent ANR sale, where it was described, in part, as follows: ".Lively mirrored fields show deep resonant rose toning and light brown highlights with some pale olive toning at the peripheries. Excellent surface quality with no significant disturbances. Two tiny spots are present at Liberty's wrist beside star 2, another is mentioned below the cut end of the olive branch above D in DOL. Struck from the same dies as Judd-434, and about equally rare with perhaps a dozen known and at least three impounded in institutional collections.Pollock found only seven appearances with possible duplication. PCGS and NGC have graded four specimens each; this is the finest certified by NGC.The finest graded by PCGS is a single PR-66 RB." This may be the last chance to purchase this specimen for many years to come. Estimated Value $17,000 - 22,000
