Excellent comment.
In fact it's not a copy, it is what served as a model for the big one standing on Liberty Island, NY. This one is much smaller (in fact nobody notice her in Paris) and was finished in 1870 by both Gustave Eiffel (for the architectural part) and Frederique-Auguste Bartholdi.
The big one was offered to US and inaugurated in 1886 for Independance centenary.
