Description

Attractive 1866 Liberty Seated
Dollar Pattern in Copper
Judd-541, PR64 Brown

1866 $1 Dollar, Judd-541, Pollock-606, Low R.6, PR64 Brown NGC.
Design.
The familiar Liberty Seated design, with the scroll and motto IN GOD WE TRUST added to the reverse. Both obverse and reverse designs were adopted to coin regular-issue 1866 silver dollars. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
In 1866 the design of the quarter, half dollar, and silver dollar were altered to include the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, as required by the Act of March 3, 1865. Current data indicate approximately 30 examples of Judd-541 are extant, a larger number than would normally be necessary to test the dies. It seems likely that some pieces were produced to satisfy demand from favored collectors. The issue occurs with both thin and thick planchets and varying weights. The present example is a thick planchet, weighing 386.8 grains.

Physical Description.
Sharply struck, with crisp detail in all areas. The surfaces exhibit attractive reddish-brown and olive toning. A few unobtrusive marks are consistent with the grade. NGC Census: 5 in PR64 Brown, 5 finer. PCGS Population: 1 in PR64 Brown; 5 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Thomas Elder, 5/1938; The December Sale (Stack's, 12/1987), lot 1027.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60739)
