Exceptionally Well-Preserved
1879 Goloid Metric Dollar

Judd-1628, PR67 Red and Brown
1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1628, Pollock-1824, R.7, PR67 Red and Brown NGC. William Barber's design for the Goloid Metric dollar features the head of Liberty with a wide band inscribed LIBERTY and a cap with all manner of American produce. The reverse is simply laid out with the composition in the center, surrounded by stars and two more rings of inscriptions. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only one other example has been certified in this condition, the Genaitis coin, a piece we handled in August 2001. The surfaces are similar on each, but they are not the same coins. Each side of this piece displays deep cobalt-blue patina with bright red accents surrounding the devices. The fields are deeply mirrored and provide brightness that enlivens the surfaces. A tiny planchet flake can be made out with a loupe in the center of the reverse. This is not present on the Genaitis coin, which has two lint marks in the right obverse field. A marvelous opportunity to acquire this copper Goloid Metric dollar in outstanding condition.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 72006)
