Description:
Attractive 1878 Barber Dollar, Proof
Judd-1555, R.7
1878 $1 Dollar, Judd-1555, Pollock-1734, R.7--Spot Removals--NGC. Unc Details. Incorrectly identified as Judd-1565 on the NGC holder, and described as having "Unc Details," although it sure appears to be a proof.
The head of Liberty faces left, with IN GOD WE TRUST above and the date 1878 below. Liberty wears a coronet inscribed LIBERTY. Thirteen stars at the border are arranged seven left, six right. The N of IN is close to the coronet point, and star 13 is close to the lowest hair curl. There are five beads above the Y in LIBERTY. On the reverse an eagle with drooping wings occupies the center, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and ONE DOLLAR, the latter in minuscules, at the rim. E PLURIBUS UNUM appears arcing in a Gothic font above the eagle. The upright of the B in PLURIBUS is centered under the tip of the right bottom serif on the second T of STATES, and the M in UNUM is slightly left of center of the M in AMERICA. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
A single tiny spot on Liberty's neck has been removed. Otherwise, this is a wonderful example of Barber's "rejected dollar" design. Both sides have fully mirrored fields beneath olive-gold and lilac toning. (PCGS# 61916)
