Description:
1879 Silver Dollar in Copper
PR64 Red Cameo, Judd-1606
1879 $1 Dollar, Judd-1606, Pollock-1802, Low R.7, PR64 Cameo Red PCGS. William Barber's entry in the 1879 silver dollar pattern series is less known than either Morgan's "Schoolgirl" dollar (Judd-1608) or Charles Barber's "Washlady" motif (Judd-1603). But Judd-1606 is a better value, trading at significantly lower levels despite its slightly greater rarity (Judd-1603 and Judd-1608 are High R.6, per the ninth edition of Judd). The obverse features a relatively small bust left of Liberty, her hair bound by a ribbon. The reverse depicts a perched eagle with unfolded wings. The eagle's claws clutch an olive branch and three arrows, and the eagle hovers above a laurel wreath. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
This is a prominently mirrored near-Gem with rich peach-red color and undisturbed surfaces. The strike is needle-sharp, and the eye appeal is superior for the grade. A few distributed toning flecks are of little import.
From The Pelican Bay Collection of Pattern Coins. (PCGS# 81984)
