Significant examples:
NGC Proof-65 Red (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", October 1-3, 2000, Lot 4424, where it was described as follows:  "Judd-834, Pollock-924. Copper. Plain Edge. Lovely deep fiery mint color the fields pristine, the devices needle-sharp. William Barber's seated figure of Liberty is here combined with the regular reverse of the Proofs of 1870. Desirable in this outstanding grade even though it isn't a rare type.
