Design. The Washlady design is attributed to Charles Barber, with Liberty's hair bound behind the head. The obverse has UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the border with the date below the bust. The reverse has a wreath around a beaded circle that contains ONE DIME with E PLURIBUS UNUM framed above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
Commentary. Dave Bowers has renamed the famous Washlady design as the Society Lady design, perhaps a more suitable name for the lady. The design was issued in four denominations from the dime to the silver dollar, and each was struck in copper and silver. In addition, the two largest denominations are known in white metal, and each is unique in that metal.
Physical Description. Slight central weakness is evident on this otherwise gorgeous Premium Gem proof. Both sides have lovely sea-green, gold, and iridescent toning over deeply mirrored fields with light cameo contrast. NGC Census: 2 in PR66, 7 finer. PCGS Population: 5 in PR66, 2 finer (12/08).
