    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar--Struck in Goloid

    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1626, Pollock-1822, R.6?, PR 64 PCGS. William Barber's design for the Goloid Metric dollar with a large head of Liberty on the obverse, paired with a reverse that carries numerous statutory as well as elemental inscriptions, broken only by a circle of stars as a decorative device. Allegedly struck in goloid but indistinguishable from the silver strikings except by elemental analysis. Reeded edge. Mostly brilliant, but each side shows a faint overlay of golden patina. Nicely reflective fields.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2A9E, PCGS# 61626)
