Description:
Lovely 1879 Judd-1623 Metric Dollar
Struck in Copper, PR65 Brown
1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1623, Pollock-1819, Low R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. The obverse features the metric dollar design of George T. Morgan, featuring a bland, rarely seen head of Liberty, her hair brushed back and fastened in a bun, with a wide ribbon atop her head reading LIBERTY in incused lettering. The reverse is the standard metric dollar design, with DEO EST GLORIA prominent in a cartouche above the central composition. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
The various metric coinage proposals occupied the Mint and the Congressional Subcommittee on Coinage, Weights, and Measures for far too long a time, as in the end they all came to nought. This is a marvelous Gem that it is a shame to label Brown. The obverse has a melange of violet, blue, and reddish-orange, while the reverse has much red remaining, and both sides have generous field-device contrast. This piece is the only PCGS-certified Brown coin, although four Red and Brown examples are graded PR63, 65, 66, and 67, and one is graded PR65 Red (11/10).
From The McCoy Family Collection of U.S. Patterns. (PCGS# 62001)
