1870 Indian Princess Dollar in Copper
1870 $1 Silver dollar, Judd-1017, Pollock-1151, Low R.7, PR64
Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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 supporting a liberty
pole in 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. Longacre's name is printed in small letters
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. This Choice proof, one of fewer than a
dozen known, features lovely shades of rose, orange, blue, and
purple that intermix over each side.
