1870 Standard Silver Dollar in Aluminum
1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1012, Pollock-1146, R.8,
PR66+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. James B. Longacre's "Indian
Princess" design that features Liberty seated beside a globe,
wearing an Indian headdress. 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. This design was
apparently a Longacre sketch made prior to 1852. It was not until
1870 that William Barber made use of this sketch (Longacre died in
1869) and he included it on a number of different pattern coins.
Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. About three pieces are
