Significant examples:
1. PCGS Proof-64 Brown (illustrated above).  Ex - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "The California Sale", October 2-3, 2000, Lot 591, where it was described (in part) as follows:  "These copper patterns were struck with the regular die used in 1872, and for that reason are thought to have been coined around that time. On the obverse, the head punch is deeply cut into the die, and the date on the reverse slants a bit up to the right. Toned with multicolored hues of unknown origin."
