Exemplary PR64 1878 Barber Dollar Pattern
Judd-1554, Struck in Silver

1878 $1 Dollar, Judd-1554, Pollock-1733, 1737, 1741, R.5, PR64 PCGS. The head of Liberty is large and faces left with IN GOD WE TRUST at the top and the date below, similar to the pattern fifty dollar gold pieces from 1877. The reverse has a spread-winged eagle with E PLURIBUS UNUM in Gothic lettering above. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the top and ONE DOLLAR on the bottom rim. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. According the USPatterns.com website, early auction catalogs identify this as the final version of Barber's rejected dollar design. Roger Burdette found a record in the Mint archives that 50 pieces were struck between December 1, 1877 and January 2, 1878. The surfaces of this near-Gem are deeply mirrored and nearly brilliant with just a hint of peripheral golden-brown patina. A lovely example of this interesting and well-researched 1878 dollar pattern. (NGC ID# 2AF5, PCGS# 61915)
