    1871 Indian Princess Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1149, PR66 Cameo

    1871 $1 Indian Princess Dollar, Judd-1149, Pollock-1291, R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. On the obverse Liberty wears an Indian headdress and supports a liberty pole with her right hand facing left. Her left hand rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY. Behind her is a flag ornamented with 22 stars. Thirteen stars surround and the date 1871 is at the bottom. The reverse is the die used for regular issue Liberty Seated dollars. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge.

    About six examples are known in this metal, which at the time was considered rather exotic and valued more highly than gold. These dollar patterns would have been sold as part complete year sets of this design with every denomination from the half dime through the dollar. Both sides showcase characteristic Cameo contrast for an aluminum pattern coin. The surfaces are clean and mostly brilliant with a hint of golden color.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2A5A, PCGS# 534862)
