    Description

    1875 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1424, R.7, PR 65 Red and Brown. Commercial Dollar pattern that shows Liberty seated at the seashore on the obverse, paired with the standard Commercial Dollar reverse. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. According to Judd, only eight of these pieces were struck. This is the popular and interesting design that shows Liberty seated on the seashore and a ship in the background. The ship is of special interest to trivia enthusiasts as the wind is blowing the sails in one direction and the smoke is pouring out of the smokestack in the opposite direction. This same design was also used on a popular twenty-cent pattern. While termed Red and Brown, there is actually very little non-red color on this beautiful piece, just a bit of light iridescence in the obverse fields. Flashy, especially on the reverse. There are two surface blemishes that identify this coin: a small rim nick on the obverse at 1 o'clock, and a carbon spot at 9 o'clock near star 1. Carefully selected by the consignor, David Faraday, from Bill Mitkoff's inventory on September 23, 1972 for $700. (NGC ID# 2A5H, PCGS# 61424)
