1871 Standard Silver Dollar in Copper
1871 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1142, Pollock-1284, High
R.7, PR64+ Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the
first Seated Liberty design by Longacre with 22 stars on the flag.
There are also 13 stars arranged around the periphery on the
obverse. The reverse displays 1 DOLLAR as the central motif,
surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn, with STANDARD above.
Struck in copper with a plain edge. About five of these Judd-1142
Standard dollar patterns are thought to exist. The certified
population totals are slightly higher but undoubtedly inflated by
resubmissions. This PR64+ Red representative is the PCGS CoinFacts
plate coin, identified by a distinctive area of cobalt-blue and
magenta toning in the left obverse field. Both sides are otherwise
bright copper-orange with few other splashes of color and just a
few scattered carbon specks. Two ticks occur below star 12. Marked
contrast exists between the pinpoint-sharp devices and flashy
mirrors, although not quite enough for a formal designation. Eye
appeal is extraordinary.
