    1871 Longacre Seated Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1147, Impressive PR66 Red and Brown

    1871 $1 One Dollar, Judd-1147, Pollock-1289, R.6-7, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. 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 Phrygian cap on top. The reverse is of the regular die. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This design is attributed to James Longacre, but it was apparently implemented by William Barber after Longacre's death in 1869, and the design lacks Longacre's name. Of the dozen or so known of this design in copper, this is one of the finest. The fields are deeply reflective and the devices noticeably frosted. These attributes are remarkable because of the depth of the mostly blue toning that covers each side. The patina leaves the mirroring and mint frost undiminished. An outstanding pattern. (NGC ID# 2A59, PCGS# 71409)
