    1870 Standard Silver Dollar, PR65
    Judd-1009, Longacre's Design

    1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1009, Pollock-1142, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Garrett-Simpson. Weight: 396 grains. The "Indian Princess" design was Chief Engraver James B. Longacre's version of the Seated Liberty concept, introduced by William Barber in 1870, after Longacre's death the previous year. The design features Liberty seated beside a globe, wearing an Indian headdress. The word LIBERTY is inscribed across the center of the globe and Liberty is holding a pole topped with a Phrygian cap. The reverse features the word STANDARD at the top with 1 / DOLLAR encompassed by a wreath of cotton and corn. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Based on an 1852-dated sketch by Longacre, this design was adopted for patterns of various compositions and denominations by his successor, William Barber. USPatterns.com estimates fewer than a dozen examples of Judd-1009 are extant.

    The present coin is a spectacular Gem with needle-sharp definition on all design elements. The well-preserved surfaces are free of mentionable distractions. Vivid shades of gunmetal-gray, magenta, cerulean-blue, and sea-green toning enhance the outstanding eye appeal. This coin was once a highlight of the famous Garrett Collection. We expect intense competition when this lot is called. Population: 1 in 65, 0 finer (4/20).
