Description

Superb Quality 1880 Goloid Metric Dollar Rarity, Aluminum Striking

1880 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1653, Pollock-1853, R.7, PR67 NGC. On the obverse, a head of Liberty faces left wearing a cap inscribed LIBERTY. The top of the cap is ornamented with ears of wheat, cotton leaves, and bolls. E PLURIBUS UNUM is at the top and the date 1880 is below with 13 peripheral stars arranged between. The central reverse expresses the composition of the denomination within a circle of 38 stars. The upper periphery displays the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination GOLOID METRIC DOLLAR, while the motto DEO EST GLORIA and 100 CENTS are at the lower border. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Untoned with glowing silver-white surfaces, both sides are silky-smooth from rim to rim. Both the technical quality and eye appeal are nothing short of breathtaking. Appreciable cameo contrast further enlivens the obverse. Very minor laminations (as struck) in the obverse field may help trace the pedigree of this important and rare specimen. (NGC ID# 2AJB, PCGS# 62038)
