    1871 Standard Silver Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1140, PR63

    1871 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1140, Pollock-1282, R.8, PR63 NGC. CAC. 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. Also struck in silver with a reeded edge (four known), copper with a reeded edge (four known), copper with a plain edge (five known), aluminum with a reeded edge (unique), and aluminum with a plain edge (unique). It is believed these pieces were part of complete sets from the half dime through the silver dollar. Each side is fully brilliant with only slight haziness seen in the fields. Deeply mirrored fields provide the "black" background for the frosted devices and resultant cameo contrast.
