    1870 Standard Silver Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1012, PR66+ Cameo

    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 known.

    This sharply detailed Plus-graded Premium Gem exhibits richly frosted design elements that contrast boldly with the reflective fields. The brilliant surfaces are impeccably preserved, with terrific eye appeal. This coin is the finest certified example of Judd-1012 and is pictured on PCGS CoinFacts. Population: 1 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
    Ex: Auction '90 (Superior, 8/1990), lot 1428; Simpson Collection.
