    Extremely Rare 1870 Longacre Standard Dollar in Aluminum, Judd-1012

    1870 Standard Dollar, Judd-1012, Pollock-1146, R.8, PR 65 PCGS. A beautiful and rare example of James B. Longacre's Indian Princess design that features Liberty seated beside a globe, wearing an Indian headdress. LIBERTY is inscribed across the center of the globe and Liberty is holding a pole topped with Phrygian cap. The reverse features the word STANDARD at the top with 1 DOLLAR encompassed by a wreath of cotton and corn. This design was apparently a Longacre sketch made prior to 1852. It was not until 1870 that he made use of this sketch and included it on a number of different pattern coins. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. A hint of milky patina adorns the carbon-free surfaces. In all probability the King Farouk specimen. (PCGS# 61260)
