    1871 Indian Princess Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1138c, PR65 Brown

    Two Examples Confirmed

    1871 $1 Dollar, Judd-1138c, Pollock-1278, R.8, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the Longacre Indian Princess design as executed posthumously by William Barber, with the addition of 13 stars around the periphery. The reverse is the standard 1871 silver dollar die. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    This is one of only two confirmed examples of Judd-1138c. The other known representative is the former Queller example in NGC PR65 Brown. Each side of this Gem proof is glossy reddish-brown, with the surfaces revealing lovely violet, ice-blue, and sea-green patina when held at an angle. A speck of toning on the rim between stars 4 and 5 serves as a pedigree marker. This is a fully struck rarity of the highest order. The present offering is the first time either of the two Judd-1138c proofs have been made publicly available since 2009.
    Ex: Russell J. Logan and Gilbert G. Steinberg Collections (Bowers and Merena, 11/2002), lot 4428; Southern Collection.
