    Important 1871 Judd-1150 Aluminum Dollar, PR64

    1871 $1 Dollar, Judd-1150, Pollock-1292, R.7, PR64 NGC.
    Design.
    The Longacre design is used on the obverse that features Liberty seated with conjoined flags behind, left hand resting on a globe, and right hand holding a Liberty pole with Phrygian cap on top. The reverse is the same regular With Motto die that also appears on Judd-1149. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge.

    Commentary.
    At least five examples of this rare variety are known. Andrew Pollock recorded four pieces in his pattern reference: the DiBello-Crouch specimen, the 1975 ANA coin, the Fairfield piece, and this example from the Queller Collection. We feel that there may actually be a few more of these Judd-1150 dollars still in existence. We have records of four distinctly different examples appearing in our auctions since 1993, and this coin from the Queller Collection is a fifth example.

    Physical Description.
    Both sides have bold design definition with lovely light gray surfaces. The fields are deeply mirrored around the satiny devices, and there are a few contact marks and die cracks that help explain the PR64 grade. Some splashes of dark steel-gray are evident on each side of this near-Gem example. NGC Census: 3 in PR64, 3 finer. PCGS Population: PCGS has certified a single PR64 with no other examples in any grade (12/08).

    Provenance.
    Ex: Bowers and Ruddy (4/1979), lot 1847; Bowers and Merena (9/1984), lot 398.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
