    1851 Seated Dollar in Copper
    Judd-132 Restrike, PR63 Brown

    1851 DT$1 Dollar, Judd-132 Restrike, Pollock-159, Low R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. CAC. Both obverse and reverse dies feature the designs used to coin the 1851 silver dollar restrikes. The obverse can be distinguished from the original 1851 dies because the date is centered on the restrikes. On the original dies the date is slanted upward. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The 10th edition of the Judd book states "Restrikes, possibly from a newly created obverse die, after the spring of 1859." This, of course, makes these pieces one more of Mint Director James Ross Snowden's "delicacies" struck as trade bait for collectors of that era. The surfaces are lightly hairlined, and have since retoned a lovely olive-brown color. When closely examined, the surfaces show a few light contact marks that account for the grade. Still, a rare example of one of the most famous dates in the Seated dollar series.
