Description:
1879 Goloid Metric Dollar in Silver
Judd-1618, PR63
1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1618, Pollock-1813, R.5, PR63 NGC. CAC.
Design.
William Barber's Metric dollar shows Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. The reverse displays a partial wreath of cotton and corn tied at the base, a ribbon, and inscriptions that include DEO EST GLORIA and the elemental composition of goloid. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary. The obverse resembles the $50 half union patterns of 1877. This design was formulated by William Barber, but probably executed by his son Charles. The design was struck in silver or goloid composition (Judd-1617), copper (Judd-1619), aluminum (Judd-1620), white metal (Judd-1620A), and lead (Judd-1621). The coins were offered in sets with Barber's other goloid dollar design (Judd-1626) and the Flowing Hair Stellas (Judd-1635). The designs were repeated in 1880.

Physical Description. The design elements of this attractive Select specimen are sharply detailed; the fields are brightly reflective, under pleasing shades of champagne-gold and lavender-gray toning. Close inspection reveals few signs of contact, the most noticeable being a few short scratches in the inner circle on the reverse. The eye appeal is excellent. Census: 1 in 63, 3 finer (3/13).

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
