Blazing Red PR66 Cameo 1879 William Barber Dollar Pattern, Judd-1606, Probable Finest Known

1879 $1 Dollar, Judd-1606, Pollock-1802, R.6-7, PR66 Red Cameo PCGS. This rare William Barber design features the head of Liberty with hair gathered and held by a ribbon tied behind, wearing a band inscribed LIBERTY incused, behind which are two heads of wheat with cotton leaves and bolls. IN GOD WE TRUST is seen above, the date below, seven stars left and six right. The reverse has a perched eagle with an open wreath around, E PLURIBUS UNUM in tiny letters above, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the top and ONE DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is quite a rare design type. It is known in silver, copper, and white metal (unique). While we cannot say with absolute certainty, we believe this is the finest example known. The fields are deeply reflective and there is a significant amount of frost on the devices, which provides a strong cameo contrast on each side. The even red surfaces show only one area of deepening, a spot of cherry-red on the reverse rim at 7 o'clock. A very important offering for the pattern specialist.(#81984) (PCGS# 81984)
