Dual Denomination Paquet Pattern

1868 $5 Dual Denomination $5-25 Francs, Judd-659, Pollock-732, Low R.7, PR63 Cameo NGC.

Anthony Paquet's design for an international five dollar coin equal to the value of a proposed 25 franc piece. The obverse depicts Liberty, facing left, with her hair bound by a ribbon and star at the front. The reverse is simply inscribed 5 / DOLLARS / 25 / FRANCS in the center with a laurel and oak wreath surrounding. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge.

Examples of this pattern were coined in copper and aluminum, each with either a plain or reeded edge. The four varieties are identified as Judd-656 through Judd-659, and about a dozen of each are known, according to USPatterns.com.

I'd say that it wasn't the most attractive depiction of liberty. Kind of dropped the ball on that one.

Paquet probably had too much French wine for inspiration.

This is a grade you don't see often, SP65BMCA. It stands for Specimen 65 Branch Mint Cameo. And yes, the coin in the holder is the coin shown below the holder. This is an extremely rare coin with only 4 known 1893-CC branch mint proofs. All 4 hace the cameo designation.

A milling machine that produced the raised edges of coins at the New Orleans Mint in 1897.

Sorry haven't been very active of late but been working on some other projects. I picked this up and thought you all might find it interesting.

a letter from John Steele, Comptroller of the US Treasury appointed by George Washington and continued to serve in that position under Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. He was also a Congressman from North Carolina in the first two sessions of the US Congress.
"Tis a lesson you should heed:
Try, try, try again.
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try, try again."
