Description

Barber-Designed 1870 Seated Liberty Dollar
The Finest Certified Judd-1003, PR66+

1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1003, Pollock-1135, R.7, PR66+ NGC. CAC.
Design.
William Barber's design features a seated Liberty facing left, supporting a shield with her right hand and holding an olive branch in her left hand. A scroll inscribed LIBERTY crosses the shield and a pole stands freely behind, supporting a Liberty cap. The date is below and 13 stars are around. The reverse is the type of the regular With Motto Seated dollars. Struck in silver with a plain edge.

Commentary. This William Barber design was sold as part of complete silver sets. Sets were also available in copper and aluminum with either reeded or plain edges. An estimated dozen pieces are known.

Physical Description. The centers are deep reddish-tinged gray with equally deep blue around the borders. The fields are brightly reflective, even through the significant toning that covers each side. The devices appear to be frosted beneath the rich layers of patina. This + graded example is the finest certified Judd-1003, taking into account non-Cameo, Cameo, and Deep/Ultra Cameo pieces. The closest rivals are an NGC PR66 and a PCGS PR66 (2/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 26W3, PCGS# 61250)
