Description:
Elegant 1870 Silver Dollar
Struck in Copper
Judd-1005, PR66 Brown
1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1005, Pollock-1137, Low R.6, PR66 Brown NGC.
Design.
The obverse portrays a seated figure of Liberty with shield and olive branch. A scroll is draped over the shield with the word LIBERTY inscribed and a Liberty pole stands behind the shield. Thirteen stars surround the central devices, with the date in the exergue. The reverse is the design used for regular-issue coinage in 1870. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary.
William Barber's elegant seated figure of Liberty was one of his best designs. USPatterns.com reports that Judd-1005 was part of the Mint's program of specialty items, sold in combination with other denominations as part of complete year sets. A typical set appeared in the Parmelee Collection (New York Coin and Stamp, 6/1890), lot 209. The set included an example of each coin from three cent piece to silver dollar, in copper with plain edges. Sets were also available in silver and aluminum, with plain or reeded edges. The Mint's market in specialty items seems to have been as active in 1870 as it is today.

Physical Description.
The deeply mirrored fields flash strongly and give additional vibrancy to the red and blue colors seen on each side. An essentially flawless example of this well-executed pattern. NGC Census: 3 in PR66 Brown, 2 finer plus a PR65 Red. PCGS Population: None in PR66 Brown, 2 finer plus 10 additional coins with lower numerical grades, but designated as either Red or Red and Brown (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's private treaty transaction.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 61252)
