    1870 William Barber Seated Liberty Dollar
    Judd-1002, PR63

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1002, Pollock-1134, Low R.6, PR63 NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. 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 in raised letters. The reverse is from the regular Seated Liberty dollar die of the year. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
    Complete sets were offered by the Mint to collectors and included the half dime, dime, quarter, half dollar, and dollar with the regular Seated Liberty reverse (as seen here), and 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.
    This nearly brilliant example has light rose toning over each side, and is starkly contrasted between the fields to devices. The obverse fields show a few slight hairlines which account for the PR63 grade. Fully struck throughout.
    Ex: Lemus/Central States (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 3529. (NGC ID# 29ZP, PCGS# 61249)
