    1870 Standard Silver Dollar in Copper
    Judd-999, Appealing PR65 Red and Brown

    1870 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-999, Pollock-1130, Low R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This is another example of the William Barber seated Liberty design, Liberty facing left with a pole and cap atop. The reverse shows an agricultural wreath with STANDARD at the top rim and 1 DOLLAR in two lines within. Struck in copper with a plain edge. No more than a dozen are known.

    These silver dollar patterns were struck in copper, aluminum, and silver, each with plain or reeded edges, and they mark the first appearance of the dollar denomination in the Standard Silver series. Like their smaller counterparts, they illogically bear no reference to the issuing nation on either side. Copper examples of these 1869-70 patterns are hard to come by with good preservation, but this is a pleasing exception. Appealing pale blue and plum-rose patina with an obverse splash of golden-orange complements well-struck, nicely preserved features. Population: 2 in 65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (8/20).
