Description:
Unusual PR65 Red 1880 Metric Goloid
Dollar Struck in Copper, Judd-1649
1880 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1649, Pollock-1849, R.7, PR65 Red NGC. The goloid metric dollar of 1880, a repeat of the 1879 design (Judd-1622) by George T. Morgan. Liberty's hair is done up in a bun, with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY in incuse letters, the Latin motto above, stars seven left, six right. 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. DEO EST GLORIA ("God is glory/To God be the glory") appears in a cartouche, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and ONE DOLLAR at the rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
The goloid metric dollars, produced in a variety of metals, reflected a desire to use the metric system to promote greater international trade. This piece is unusual with the Red designation; the reverse field are nearly entirely reddish-orange, with brown devices, while the obverse shows a bit more medium-brown interspersed with the red. A virtually contact-free piece, one of perhaps a dozen survivors today. The only piece graded finer at NGC is the PR67 Red and Brown from the Lemus Collection. Census: 1 in 65 Red, 0 finer (11/10). (PCGS# 82034)
