    Spectacular Amazonian Gold Dollar Pattern in Aluminum

    1872 G$1 One Dollar, Judd-1226, Pollock-1368, R-7, PR 67 NGC. William Barber's "Amazonian" design that features a bust of Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap inscribed LIBERTY, facing left, with thirteen stars around and the date 1872 below. The reverse has an eagle with open wings holding three arrows in its right talon and supporting a shield with its left. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around, and the denomination ONE DOL. is below. A scroll crossing the shield is inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. This lovely piece has satin surfaces with some obverse reflectivity. There is a noticeable contact mark on Liberty's face, behind the eye.
