1872 $3 Amazonian Three Dollar, Judd-1236, Pollock-1378, High R.6, PR63 Gilt NGC
William Barber's "Amazonian Gold" design, similar to the gold dollar pattern except the denomination is expressed as THREE DOL. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Intricately detailed design elements are present on this lovely and highly collectible pattern. The lowest hair curl by the date has forked ends pointing down, and star 13 touches the middle curl. Liberty's bust tip is nearly vertical, unlike the other denominations that have a distinct bust point or tip. Star 1 is almost entirely below the bust line.
