1849 $10 Miners Bank Ten Dollar Copper Pattern, Kagin-1, R.8, AU50 NGC. When Donald H. Kagin published the still-standard reference, Private Gold Coins and Patterns of the United States, this copper pattern received an R.8 rating. The principals of the Miners Bank are identified as Stephen Wright and Samuel Haight, who also issued paper money that likely saw very little circulation. An attractive copper pattern for the Miners Bank ten-dollar gold piece, this example displays pleasing tawny-brown surfaces with a few minor marks and trivial rim bumps. This is the first example of the copper pattern that we have handled since we started our Permanent Auction Archives in 1993. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
