1871 Commercial Dollar, PR63 Brown PCGS, One of Four Known Judd-1156 Patterns1871 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1156, Pollock-1300, R.8, PR63 Brown PCGS. The obverse features Longacre's Indian Princess design with 22 stars on the flag behind Liberty and 13 stars about the obverse periphery. Probably implemented by William Barber, since Longacre died in 1869. The reverse, used for the Judd-1154 through 1160 varieties, exhibits the legends UNITED STATES OF AMERICA/COMMERCIAL/DOLLAR/420 GRS/900 FINE along with a wreath and cornucopia. GOD OUR TRUST is displayed on a scroll above the wreath ribbon. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. An extremely rare pattern, uspatterns.com lists four known specimens, with the present piece as item three on the list. This is a well struck example that has glimpses of faded red color along with deeper steel-blue and dusky rose patina. Faint handling marks near the third and ninth stars perform pedigree duty for any future auction appearances.(#61418) (PCGS# 61418)
