1880 Goloid Metric Dollar in Aluminum
Judd-1656, PR65 Cameo

1880 P$1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1656, Pollock-1856, High R.7, PR65 Cameo NGC. CAC.
The left-facing head of Liberty shows the hair braided and coiled at the back of her head. A band inscribed LIBERTY encircles her hair. There are 13 stars at the border, 7 left and 6 right with the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM above, and the date below. The reverse inscription 15.3 - G. 236.7 - S. 28 - C. 14 GRAMS is centered within a circle of 38 stars. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination GOLOID METRIC DOLLAR are above the circle, and the motto DEO EST GLORIA and 100 CENTS are below. The reverse expresses the denomination in two different ways, one of the few patterns to do so. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.

Commentary. The website states that "about four" examples of Judd-1656 are known. The Newman example and one other certified PR66 are the only two submissions examined at NGC, while PCGS has seen one PR63 and another graded PR67. It is likely that the four certified pieces are the only ones known. We handled the PR63 PCGS coin in January 1999 and the PR67 PCGS example in March 2006, and that was the last auction appearance of this Judd variety.

Physical Description. A few faint lines on Liberty's cheek are observed on this Gem Cameo proof, with the obverse bordering on Ultra Cameo contrast. The reverse also borders on Ultra Cameo contrast. The surfaces are light gray, consistent with the composition, and contact marks are minimal. A highly appealing example of a classic pattern design.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 2AJE, PCGS# 62041)
