    1870 Seated Liberty Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1020, PR53

    1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1020, Pollock-1155, Low R.7, PR53 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular dies for the 1870 Seated Liberty dollar. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only about six or seven of these pieces survive in a variety of different grades. This piece has probably been cleaned, and now has acquired intermingled reddish-brown and darker olive patina with a small area of green corrosion along the left obverse border. Possibly carried as some sort of curious pocket piece, and either way, an eye-catching rarity.
    Ex: Internet Auction (Heritage, 9/2000), lot 3773; Jones Beach Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1461.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 61268)
