1879 S$1 J-1606, BN
Beautifully Toned 1879 Copper Dollar Pattern, Judd-16061879 $1 Dollar, Judd-1606, Pollock-1802, R.6-7, PR67 Brown NGC. Same design as the silver piece above, with the central motif similar to Charles Barber's "Washlady" patterns, the head of Liberty faces left with IN GOD WE TRUST above, the date below, and thirteen stars to the left and right. A spread wing eagle is in the center of the reverse with a laurel wreath around the eagle, E PLURIBUS UNUM above the eagle's head, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the margin. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The reflective proof mirrors serve as a bright backdrop to the rich violet-indigo and cobalt-blue toning that covers each side. Even through the depth of toning present on this piece, one can easily see that a cameo contrast is present from the thick mint frost on the devices.
From the Genaitis Collection of 1879 Coinage. (PCGS# 61984)
