    1870 Seated Dollar in Nickel
    Judd-1022, MS62
    Possibly Two Known

    1870 $1 Seated Dollar, Judd-1022, Pollock-1157, Low R.7, MS62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue Seated Liberty dies for the year. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. Not only is the one of the few large-size patterns struck in this metal-edge combination, it is also one of the only patterns known to have been struck from both proof and circulation-strike dies. This Mint State representative features brilliant surfaces that are lustrous rather than flashy or reflective, with considerable softness around the rims. Probably fewer than a half dozen Judd-1022 pieces exists, both formats included. The Farouk Collection contained two Mint State examples, and as far as we can tell, the only certified business strikes are this MS62 Simpson coin and an MS66 from the Denali Collection.
    Ex: Possibly King Farouk Palace Collection Sale (Sotheby's 2/1954), lot 1839; possibly Gaston DiBello Collection (Stack's, 5/1970), lot 412; possibly Dr. Walter Lee Crouch Collection (Superior Galleries, 6/1977), lot 17; Father Flanagan's Boys Home Sale (Superior Galleries, 5/1990), lot 3338, where it brought $5,500.
