    1870 Dollar, Barber's Seated Liberty
    Judd-1002, PR63 Cameo

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1002, Pollock-1134, Low R.6, PR63 Cameo NGC.
    Design.
    The William Barber Seated Liberty design. A seated Liberty faces left, with 13 stars ringing the rim and the date 1870 in exergue. She holds a shield with her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A cap rests atop a Liberty pole, and a scroll crosses the shield with LIBERTY thereon. The reverse is from the regular Seated Liberty dollar die of the year. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    The complete sets offered by the Mint to collectors and including the half dime, dime, quarter, half dollar, and dollar were combined not only as here, with the regular Seated Liberty reverse, but also with the Standard Silver reverse. USPatterns.com estimates that more than a dozen are known of this variety, accounting for the Low R.6 rating in Judd.

    Physical Description.
    This brilliant example has starkly contrasted field to devices contrast on each side. The obverse fields show a few slight hairlines which account for the PR63 grade. Fully struck throughout. NGC and PCGS combined have certified a total of 22 pieces, less duplicates. NGC Census: 1 in PR63 Cameo, 2 finer with the Cameo designation plus a single PR64 lacking the Cameo designation. PCGS Population: None in PR63 Cameo or finer, though there is a single PR64 plus 2 PR65 pieces without the Cameo designation in the Population (12/08).

    Provenance.
    Unknown.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 29ZP, PCGS# 61249)
