    1871 Standard Silver Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1143, PR66 Cameo
    One or Two Known

    1871 $1 Dollar, Judd-1143, Pollock-1285, R.8, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the first Seated Liberty design by Longacre with twenty-two stars on the flag. There are also thirteen stars arranged around the periphery on the obverse. The reverse displays 1 DOLLAR as the central motif, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, with STANDARD above. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. USPatterns.com lists this piece as the only confirmed Judd-1143. However, Pollock reports and the plated sale catalog confirms that Stack's offered another example as part of the S.E. Goldsmith Collection (10/1958), lot 1461. The quality of the image makes coming to a determination one way or another difficult. Both sides impart a brilliant, highly reflective appearance without spotting or the milky patina so often encountered on aluminum coins. The 187 of the date are noticeably recut.
    Ex: Possibly S.E. Goldsmith Collection (Stack's, 10/1958), lot 1461; Fairfield Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/1977), lot 55; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 4581; Southern Collection.
