    1863 Motto Seated Dollar in Copper
    Judd-346, Incredible PR66 Red Cameo

    1863 $1 Motto Seated Dollar, Judd-346, Pollock-418, Low R.7, PR66★ Red Cameo NGC. This is a so-called transitional issue. This pattern uses the dies of the regular Seated Liberty dollar of the year, but it bears the addition of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on a swirling scroll on the reverse, of the type introduced on regular-issue coinage in 1866. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. As stated on the USPatterns.com website, "These and the other 'with motto' patterns of this date and also 1864 and possibly 1865 are actually restrikes made circa 1869 and into the early 1870s and were offered with restrikes of the other denominations in complete sets."

    The silver and copper strikes are of about equal rarity "with about a dozen known" stated on the website. The metallic rarity in this issue is the aluminum variant, with only four estimated known, one of which is housed permanently in the ANS. However, of even greater rarity is the copper strike designated Red and Cameo, and here with the added Star for superior eye appeal. This is the only Red Cameo coin.

    The surfaces show rich cherry-red color and no mentionable variation in hue. The cameo contrast is profound with thick mint frost over the devices on each side against the deeply mirrored proof fields. By way of identification, there is a lilac-gray accent of color over Liberty's face and a thornlike projection in the planchet on the top left of the O in DOL.
