    Description

    1879 "Washlady" Dollar, Judd-1604, R.6, PR 65 Red and Brown. Barber's so-called "Washlady" design on the obverse, paired with a reverse that features an erect eagle with raised wings. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The rich coppery-red surfaces show only slight mellowing of the original orange-red color with an occasional streak of purplish-blue seen here and there in the fields. There are a few tiny specks of carbon noted, but the only one of any size is concealed in Liberty's coronet. A rare and desirable design type, this piece should bring an impressive price. To give some idea of what sort of premium "Washlady" dollars have historically commanded, this piece was purchased by the consignor, David Faraday, from Bill Mitkoff's inventory on September 23, 1972 for $1,600. (PCGS# 61604)
