    1870 Indian Princess Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1015, Richly Toned PR66

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1015, Pollock-1149, Low R.7, PR66 PCGS. CAC.
    Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Indian Princess obverse shows Liberty seated, with her left hand resting on a globe and right hand holding a Liberty pole with cap on top. There are two conjoined flags behind, one ornamented with 22 stars. The reverse is the regular-issue Seated dollar design. Struck in silver with a plain edge. William Barber is generally credited with this majestic obverse, but it was actually designed by James Longacre, who died in early 1869. The better way to phrase it is "a William Barber-implemented design." Examples are known in silver, copper, and aluminum -- both reeded edge and plain edge variants. About a dozen pieces are known of this plain edge variety (with a similar number of reeded edge dollars produced). The surfaces have taken on multiple layers of toning, which yields an attractive color palette on each side. Fully struck.
