1865 Pattern Dollar. Copper, reeded edge. J-435. PCGS graded Proof 64 Red & Brown. Lovely, orange red surfaces, completely original and unmolested, with traces of faded mint luster in the protected areas. The obverse consists of a die used on regular issue 1865 Silver Dollars; the reverse is from the With Motto type that did not appear on regular issue coins until 1866. According to the U.S. Patterns website ( "These and the other "with motto" patterns of this date and also 1863 and 1864 are actually restrikes made circa 1868 to the early 1870s and offered with restrikes of other denominations in complete sets. The first definite sales occurrence for an 1865 with motto set was in the October 1870 Mason & Company sale of the Fewsmith collection. A possible earlier listing may be Cogan's September 1869 sale." Their date of manufacture has never diminished their popularity.
This is one of the nicer examples of the dozen or so that are known to exist. In top conditions, PCGS reports a PR-63RB, this example, and a PR-66 RB. Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000
