1871 Indian Princess Dollar in Silver
1871 $1 Dollar, Judd-1145, Pollock-1287, Low R.7, PR65 Cameo
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features James B. Longacre's
design for Seated Liberty wearing an Indian headdress, facing left,
and supporting a liberty pole with her right hand. Her left hand
rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY. Behind her is a flag ornamented
with 22 stars. Thirteen stars surround, the lowest of which are
away from the base, and the date 1871 below. The reverse is from
the die used for regular issue Liberty Seated dollars. Struck in
silver with a reeded edge.
Judd-1145, PR65 Cameo
Examples of this design are known in silver, copper, and aluminum with plain and reeded edges. About a dozen exist in silver with reeded edges, according to USPatterns.com, while more than a dozen in silver are believed extant with plain edges. These patterns were sold to collectors as part of complete year sets from half dime to silver dollar.
This largely brilliant Cameo proof shows thin blushes of pale golden color that have no effect on the field-device contrast. Lint marks and small voids are practically unseen, and contact is minimal for the grade, requiring a strong lens to see. This is the only Judd-1145 pattern at PCGS with a Cameo designation (4/20).
