Extremely Rare 1876 Sailor Head Copper Dollar
Pattern, Judd-1463, PR64 Brown

1876 $1 Sailor Head Dollar, Judd-1463, Pollock-1613, R.7, PR64 Brown NGC. William Barber's Sailor Head motif is on the obverse, with her coronet inscribed LIBERTY. The periphery includes IN GOD WE TRUST, the date, and 13 stars. The reverse displays an open laurel wreath with ONE DOLLAR at the center, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM across the border. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This Sailor Head dollar pattern issue, although similar to the Judd-1457 through Judd-1461 silver dollar pattern, has a slightly larger head and broader neck, with a jawline that is only faintly demarcated. The copper Judd-1463 is practically the only representative of the Sailor Head issue that most collectors can expect to acquire, as most of the remaining Centennial-year patterns of this design are essentially unobtainable. This piece offers deeply tinged orange-brown and bluish surfaces that lack overly distracting abrasions, although some minor contact is evident. (NGC ID# 2ACT, PCGS# 61784)
