Description

1880 Metric Dollar, Judd-1646, PR65 Brown

1880 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1646, Pollock-1846, Low R.6, PR65 Brown NGC.
Design.
On the obverse the head of Liberty faces left, wearing a broad coronet inscribed LIBERTY. Beads decorate the top border of the coronet, and Liberty's hair is thick and wavy. Thirteen stars encircle the rim, with the motto above and date below the portrait. The reverse offers a wreath of cotton and wheat, with inner circle of dots enclosing 895.8 S. / 4.2--G. / 100--C. / 25 GRAMS. Despite the Judd misidentification as E PLURIBUS UNUM, the actual Latin motto present is DEO EST GLORIA ("God is glory/To God be the glory") in a cartouche, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and ONE DOLLAR at the rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
One of the most available of the 1880 goloid metric patterns, while still rare by any conceivable U.S. coin standard. Although USPatterns.com lists the copper Judd-1646 as rarer than the "goloid" Judd-1645, empirical evidence and the Judd ninth edition suggest that the Judd-1646 is more "common," with perhaps two dozen survivors extant. This concords with the NGC/PCGS population data that show 26 survivors at both services combined (less duplicates, as always).

Physical Description.
Medium copper-orange coloration predominates, with glimpses of forest-green near the rims. Generous eye appeal is present throughout. A small dark toning spot between stars 6 and 7 serves as a pedigree marker. Sharply struck and pleasing. NGC Census: 2 in PR65 Brown, 3 finer. PCGS Population: 1 in PR65 Brown, 9 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Gaston DiBello Collection (Stack's, 5/1970), lot 447; Crouch (Superior, 6/1977), lot 558; Auction '85 (Superior, 7/1985), lot 846.
