Description:

1879 Goloid Metric Dollar in Bronze
Judd-1632, PR66 Red
The Finest Certified Specimen
1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1632, Pollock-1829, R.7, PR66 Red NGC.
Design.
George Morgan's design for a goloid metric dollar with the head of Liberty facing left on the obverse, hair braided and coiled at the back of her head, E PLURIBUS UNUM above and the date 1879 below, with stars on the left and right side. On the reverse, the elemental components are central to that side and surrounded by a small circle of stars, and two other circles of statutory requirements between the stars and the rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Eric P. Newman's envelope describes this as "The splendid head with coiled hair by Morgan."

Commentary. Although a dozen or more examples are known in bronze, few can equal the Newman example. This Premium Gem is the finest of seven pieces that NGC has examined, and it is finer than any of the 10 grading events at PCGS. Examples of this pattern variety are also known in silver (or goloid), aluminum, and white metal. The design was repeated in 1880.

Physical Description. An incredible Premium Gem with brilliant orange mint color throughout. The design elements are boldly impressed, displaying frosty luster within a deeply mirrored frame. Minute mellowing of the original mint color is evident, with a few scattered carbon flecks. This is an amazing example that ranks as the finest known Judd-1632 pattern dollar.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $35; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 82010)
