    1870 Indian Princess Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1017, PR66 Brown

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1017, Pollock-1151, Low R.7, PR66 Brown NGC. The obverse is the Longacre Indian Princess design with a figure of Liberty seated and facing left, 13 stars around the upper peripheries, and the date 1870 below. Liberty is wearing an Indian headdress, and supports a liberty pole with her right hand. Her left hand rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY. Behind are two flags, one of which is ornamented with twenty-two stars. The figure of Liberty is taken from the Indian Princess design of James Longacre, and his last name is printed in small letters just beneath the base of the globe. The reverse design is the same used to coin regular issue Liberty Seated silver dollars. Struck in copper with a plain edge.
    Fewer than a dozen examples are known of this pattern dollar. For a coin designated as Brown this piece has a remarkable vibrancy. The fields are deeply reflective and each side has light gray-lilac color. Two light spots are located near the top of the reverse. An exceptional Indian Princess dollar.
