Gorgeous 1870 Silver Dollar Pattern
Struck in Nickel, Judd-1022
Regular Reverse, PR66 Cameo

1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1022, Pollock-1157, Low R.7, PR66 Cameo NGC.
The regular dies for the 1870 Seated Liberty dollar, but with rusted devices on both sides. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge.

About half a dozen of these patterns survive in nickel, struck from proof dies and business strike dies, according to Saul Teichman at The rusted design motifs suggest that this pattern was struck sometime after 1870. We are unaware of any specific diagnostic studies of the dies, but offer the following observations: The inside top of the 0 in the date appears to be minutely recut, the shield point is over the center of the upright of the 1, the left base of the 1 is over the center of a dentil, and the date is approximately centered between the border and the base of Liberty. The reverse has a short die line at the top of E in WE.

Physical Description.
An incredible specimen with bold cameo contrast between the frosty devices and fully mirrored fields. Both sides exhibit splendid light gray surfaces with hints of champagne and iridescent toning. The design motifs are boldly rendered. The surfaces exhibit slight roughness that remains from the planchet before this piece was struck. Three examples of Judd-1022 have been certified by NGC as of (12/08), with the current offering being the finest specimen--the other PR66 is not designated as Cameo. PCGS has no examples of Judd-1022 in their Population (12/08).
