    1870 Dollar Struck in Silver
    Judd-1014, PR65+ Cameo
    Indian Princess Design, Ex: Bass

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1014, Pollock-1148, Low R.7, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Liberty is depicted as an Indian princess facing left, her left hand resting on a globe inscribed LIBERTY, her right holding a Liberty pole and cap. Two flags flank her, one bearing 22 stars. The name LONGACRE is spelled out in full at the right base of the rock. Despite the signature, the spacing of stars 1-5, with the intervening cap, then star 6, Liberty's head, and then star 7, is somewhat reminiscent of the William Barber seated Liberty design (see Judd-1002, for example). In fact, Barber may have finished this design after Longacre's death on Jan. 1, 1869. The reverse is the regular-issue silver dollar design for the year. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    The Indian Princess design is among the most iconic pattern designs of 1870. Pattern series aficionados as well as silver dollar collectors eagerly pursue high-grade examples. This example struck in silver would prove to be a real prize to collectors who normally adhere to the regular circulation or proof issues. The surfaces are brilliantly mirrored underneath a moderate layer of orange toning splashed with hazel and violet accents. For the Judd-1014 design, this coin is both the only Gem proof at PCGS as well as the only Cameo example at that service (8/20).
