High R.6 1879 Dollar in Copper
Judd-1606, PR64 Brown
1879 $1 Dollar, Judd-1606, Pollock-1802, High R.6, PR64 Brown NGC.
Another example of the modified Washlady design, with some Coiled Head influences also visible. The ninth edition of Judd, edited by Q. David Bowers, attributes this design to William Barber. Liberty's hair is tightly coiled with a ribbon at the back, and she wears a band in her hair with incused LIBERTY. The stars are seven left, six right, with date below. The problematic reverse shows a rather poorly modeled eagle on a perch, with an irregularly spaced and misaligned UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. The Latin motto is beneath, and because the eagle holds the right (facing) wing higher than the left, the UNUM is on the verge of crashing into it. Both the olive branch and arrows are poorly modeled: The tip of the branch appears cut off behind the left wing, and the arrowheads scarcely emerge from behind the right. An attractive wreath surrounds the eagle, with the denomination below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Like its silver sibling, the copper striking of the Judd-1606 is also rated a borderline R.7 by This design was either modeled by William Barber when he was in his early 70s (per Judd) and in the last year of his life, or by his son Charles when he was approaching 40.

Physical Description.
Richly lustrous surfaces are deeply patinated in shades of blue and purple on both sides, like much original copper coinage certified as "Brown." The strike is uniformly sharp throughout, and generous eye appeal is present on both sides. A small straight-line scrape from Liberty's mouth into the left obverse field serves as a pedigree marker. Pollock records a weight of 361.0 gn, diameter 1.492 in., and 180-degree die alignment. Between NGC and PCGS combined, there are an even dozen specimens certified of this variety, less the inevitable duplications. NGC Census: 1 in PR64 Brown, 6 finer. PCGS Population: None in PR64 regardless of designation, 4 finer (12/08).
