Description:
Exceptional Gem 1880 Flowing Hair Stella, Gilt, Judd-1658
1880 $4 Flowing Hair Four Dollar, Judd-1658, Pollock-1858, Low R.7, PR65 Gilt NGC. The Flowing Hair design was Charles Barber's interpretation for an international coinage that was proposed by former Minister to Austria John Kasson. As a rule, the Flowing Hair design is seen with the 1879 date, but a limited number were struck also in 1880. Gilt copper and aluminum strikings of the stella represent an affordable alternative for the collector who wishes a representative of the design but does not want to spend the big bucks an actual gold striking would require. This piece is struck in copper with a reeded edge. The gilt overlay is very attractive and well done, giving the piece a deceptively similar appearance to an actual gold striking. Close examination reveals a few microscopic imperfections in the gilt, but the gold overlay is complete in all areas, and all in all this is a very impressive pattern. The only marks of note are a short scuff in the exergual area just below the truncation of Liberty's bust and a thin, shallow scratch in the right obverse field.(#62043) (PCGS# 62043)
