    1871 Standard Silver Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1142, PR67 Red Cameo
    Finest by Two Points at PCGS

    1871 $1 Standard Silver Dollar, Judd-1142, Pollock-1284, High R.7, PR67 Red Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The Indian Princess design first used in 1870 and then again in 1871 with LONGACRE removed. This obverse shows 22 stars on the flag, rather than 13, and both stars 1 and 13 are situated further from the figure of Liberty. The reverse shows STANDARD at top with 1 / DOLLAR in two lines inside an agricultural wreath of corn and cotton. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

    This coin displays great eye appeal. Mirrored, lustrous fields are still largely copper-orange, save for an occasional tinge of lilac. The devices show more color and set up excellent contrast against the fields. No mentionable blemishes mar the aesthetics. Perhaps five examples are known of this pattern, but with duplications and crossovers in the population data, it might be possible that only three of four exist. This piece is not only the finest by two grade points at PCGS regardless of color, it is also the only Cameo proof at that service in any condition. The second-finest is a respectable PR65 Red example that we handled back in 2003. NGC reports a single PR67+ Star Ultra Cameo coin, which may or may not be the same as this piece (8/20).
