1870 Standard Silver Dollar in Aluminum
1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1000, Pollock-1132, R.8,
PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Seated Liberty
design, with a Liberty pole that appears to pierce Liberty's arm. A
circle of stars rings the obverse. The reverse depicts an
agricultural wreath, with STANDARD above and 1 / DOLLAR in the
center, the latter in an arc. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is omitted
from both dies. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. These
Standard Silver dollar patterns were issued in complete sets from
five cents through this denomination. About three or four examples
of Judd-1000 are believed extant, and the certification totals
reflect that. PCGS reports one each in PR64, PR66 Cameo (this
piece), and PR65 Deep Cameo, while NGC shows a single example in
PR64 Ultra Cameo (4/20).
Judd-1000, PR66 Cameo
This Premium Gem proof features brilliant and dramatically contrasted surfaces with mirrored fields and frosted, fully struck motifs. Void of mentionable imperfections. Another fantastic rarity from Bob Simpson's collection.
