    1871 Standard Silver Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1140, PR62+ Cameo

    1871 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1140, Pollock-1282, R.8, PR62+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's implementation of James Longacre's design for the Seated dollar. The obverse shows an Indian Princess, facing left, hand on globe, two flags behind (one with 22 stars), Liberty pole behind with Phyrgian cap atop the pole. Thirteen stars around are arranged around the border, date below. The reverse shows a complex agricultural wreath with 1 DOLLAR within, the word STANDARD in small letters around the upper border, a.k.a. the "Standard Silver" reverse of 1870. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Struck in silver, copper, and aluminum. Only three pieces are known of this variant in silver and with a plain edge. The fields are equally bright and reflective on both sides and untoned in the centers. A slight accent of golden-brown and blue encircles the margins. The nicely frosted devices provide strong contrast against the mirrored fields.
    Ex: Farouk Collection (Sotheby's, 2-3/1954); (Spink / Smythe, 5/2011), as PCGS MS61.
