    1865 Seated Dollar Pattern, Judd-434, PR62
    Struck Over an Already-Struck 1866 Dollar

    1865/1866 $1 Dollar, Judd-434, Pollock-507, Low R.7, PR62 NGC. CAC. Ex: Bass/ANA Museum Display. The Judd-434 patterns use the regular-issue obverse die of the 1865 Seated dollar but show a scroll with motto IN GOD WE TRUST above the eagle on reverse, the so-called "transitional" coins. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The present Bass Museum example certainly gives the lie to that designation, as this coin is overstruck on an already-struck 1866 With Motto Seated dollar. A complete and bold date 1866 is visible underlying (and lower down than) the subsequent 1865 date. Several other areas -- the right-half obverse stars, the lower denticles on both sides, ONE DOL and UNIT, all show evidence of overstriking on the later-dated coin. (The notching visible on several letters of the motto, similar to the effect of a doubled-die coin, proves that the 1866 coin did, in fact, have a motto on the reverse before the overstriking.) notes that "as the coin weighs only 399.5 grains, the coin must have been well circulated or else worked on prior to striking." Reflective bluish-gray fields host considerable reflectivity. A coin that warrants further study.
