Copper Amazonian Pattern 1872 Half Dollar
Tied For Finest Known 1872 Pattern Half Dollar. Judd-1201, Pollock-1341. Barber’s Amazonian Type. Copper. Reeded Edge. Rarity-7-. Proof-67 RB NGC. Obv: William Barber’s seated Amazonian design, Liberty left in Phrygian cap with flowing hair, left arm leans on shield, left hand holds sword, left breast bared, right hand rests on standing eagle’s head, stars 7 x 6, date in exergue. Rev: standing eagle, head left, sinister (eagle’s left, viewer’s right) talons uphold shield and laurel branch, IN GOD WE TRUST on draped ribbon, arrows in dexter (eagle’s right, viewer’s left) talons, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, HALF DOL. below. This enchanting Proof Amazonian half dollar pattern offers a study in deep chocolate-brown with a subtle chestnut underglow on the obverse. The reverse is somewhat lighter in appearance, with deep rose-tan surfaces that reveal hints of underlying mint orange. On the whole, the aesthetics are choice, the surfaces are essentially mark-free, and even the smallest design elements are as crisp as intended by the artist.
This specimen is tied for finest certified by NGC out of just four grading events listed for J-1201 – there’s a Proof-64 BN, two at Proof-67 RB, and one at Proof-67 RB Cameo, and that’s it for Barber’s Amazonian half dollar in copper at NGC. PCGS has a half dozen grading events on its roster for J-1201, none of them finer than the present coin. This gives us a certified population of 10 pieces between those two services. Out of the 10, one of the finest available is now available for your bidding consideration. We hope you are prepared to stick it out to the end!
NGC Census: 3; none finer within any designation; 1 of the 3 is designated Proof-67 RB CAM.
