Title Lot 3997
Date 1871
Country U.S.
Denomination G$1

1871 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1161, Pollock-1303, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. Design. The regular dies for the 1871 gold dollar, struck in copper with a reeded edge. Commentary. Less than half a dozen examples of Judd-1161 are known and the Newman specimen is likely the finest. Five examples have been submitted to NGC, including this Red and Brown example and another certified PR64 Red and Brown Cameo. The other three NGC pieces are designated Brown, and probably represent resubmissions of just one or two coins. PCGS has never certified an example of Judd-1161. Physical Description. The proof surfaces are somewhat subdued on this piece, with some inconsequential carbon flecks on the obverse and mellow toning on the reverse, veiling the apparent cameo contrast of this Gem specimen. Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. From The Eric P. Newman Collection.
