    Spectacular 1870 Silver Dollar
    Struck in Copper
    Judd-1004, PR64 Brown

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1004, Pollock-1136, Low R.7, PR64 Brown NGC.
    Design.
    The obverse portrays a seated figure of Liberty with shield and olive branch. A scroll is draped over the shield with the word LIBERTY inscribed and a Liberty pole stands behind the shield. Thirteen stars surround the central devices, with the date in the exergue. The reverse is the design used for regular-issue coinage in 1870. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    The aesthetically pleasing obverse design is one of William Barber's finest efforts. This issue was produced in copper as here, and in silver and aluminum as well. USPatterns.com estimates that about a dozen specimens survive.

    Physical Description.
    Sharply struck, with fine detail in Liberty's hair and the eagle's feathers. Iridescent reddish-brown and cerulean-blue toning enhances the surfaces. The overall eye appeal is outstanding. NGC Census: 2 in PR64 Brown, 3 finer. PCGS Population: 1 in PR64 Brown, 7 finer (12/08).

    Provenance.
