1876 G$1 Gold Dollar, Judd-1478, Pollock-1631, High R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Design. The regular dies for the 1876 gold dollar, struck in copper with a reeded edge. Commentary. Only four or five of these pieces are thought to exist today, and this is only the third distinct specimen that we have handled in the past 20 years. The Newman example is the finest of only four that NGC has certified along with pieces graded PR63 Brown, PR64 Brown, and PR64 Red and Brown Cameo. PCGS has certified two submissions as PR63 Brown and one as PR64 Brown. Physical Description. Both sides combine brilliant light orange mint color in the fields with olive-brown patina on the devices. A few other splashes of light brown and red toning are apparent. Carbon flecks are minimal and eye appeal is exceptional. 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.
