    1880 Goloid Metric Dollar Pattern, Judd-1654, Ex: Eliasberg

    1880 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1654, Pollock-1854, R.7, PR 65 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. On the obverse the head of Liberty has her hair braided and coiled at the back of her head and faces left. A band inscribed LIBERTY encircles her hair. There are 13 stars at the border, 7 left and 6 right. The inscription 15.3 - G. 236.7 - S. 28 - C. 14 GRAMS is centered within a circle of 38 stars on the reverse. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination GOLOID METRIC DOLLAR are above the circle, and the motto DEO EST GLORIA and 100 CENTS are below. The reverse is one of very few patterns to express the denomination in two different ways. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Warmly toned in shades of gray, rose, and golden-brown with deeper hues on the reverse.
    This Coiled Hair design represents the last of the Metric dollar patterns. The obverse is virtually identical to that on the Coiled Hair stella, and both were issued at the same time to members of the House Committee on Coinage, Weights, and Measures. This is the finest example known of this scarce pattern with only two others certified to date (12/98). From the Benson Collection of Finest Known Type.
    Ex: Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/96), lot 295. (PCGS# 61654)
