    1871 Standard Silver Dollar in Silver
    PR63 Cameo

    Judd-1120, The Harry Bass Specimen

    1871 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1120, Pollock-1256, High R.7, PR63 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Bass. The James Longacre Indian Princess design dominates the central obverse, showing no stars or other peripheral elements. The initials J.B.L. appear at the lower right of Liberty's rock, in the field. The date 1871 appears below the rock. The 1870 Standard Silver reverse features an open agricultural wreath enclosing 1 / DOLLAR, with STANDARD at the top rim. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. These were apparently fashioned by Chief Engraver William Barber, as Longacre died in 1869. The Standard Silver patterns sold in sets to collectors, complete from half dime to silver dollar. USPatterns.com estimates that only three or four pieces are known of this issue. This piece shows surfaces that are mostly brilliant, with a touch of light champagne toning on each side.
