1880 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1646, Pollock-1846, Low R.6, PR66+ Red Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse William Barber design is similar to that used on the famous fifty dollar gold "half union" patterns of 1877 (Judd-1546), and identical to an earlier use on the 1879 goloid metric dollars (Judd-1617): Liberty facing left wearing a coronet inscribed LIBERTY with beaded top, hair wavy and thick, E PLURIBUS UNUM above, stars seven left and six right, date below. The reverse shows a circle of dots enclosing 895.8 -- S. / 4.2 -- G. / 100 -- C. 25 GRAMS, within an open wreath of wheat and cotton. DEO EST GLORIA is within a "descending dove"-shaped cartouche above. Around the rim are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA / ONE DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
More than a dozen of these copper strikes are known today. This beautiful Premium Gem proof shows perceptible contrast on both sides amid deep reddish patina. This is the sole Cameo example at PCGS, and the PCGS plate coin. There is one PR67 Red and Brown non-Cameo also graded, along with a few lower-graded pieces. A gorgeous pattern that ticks a lot of boxes for many collectors.
