Dr. Judd's Own 1876 J-1467 Pattern (Trade) Dollar1876 $1 Seated Liberty Silver Dollar, Judd-1467, Pollock-1618, High R.7, PR66 NGC. The obverse shows Liberty seated on the seashore, holding an olive branch, with conjoined flags behind her. A steamship is in the distance. Liberty's left hand rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY, although the word is rather weakly impressed on this example. Between the base and the date, IN GOD WE TRUST is presented in a cartouche. The reverse is rather plainly laid out with ONE DOLLAR in the center, surrounded by an olive wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the upper margin and E PLURIBUS UNUM in small letters at the bottom of that side. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. 1876 pattern dollars are very rare and many advanced collectors lack an example.
Only five examples of this particular pattern variety are alleged to have been struck, with just three pieces traced today. These pieces were struck on Trade dollar planchets, implying that they are legitimate Trade dollar patterns. The surfaces are lightly hairlined with no obvious or distracting blemishes on either side. Light golden toning is seen along the border on each side with much lighter, almost brilliant centers. The fields of this Gem are deeply mirrored with lustrous devices.
