    1872 Commercial Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1212, PR67+ Cameo

    1872 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1212, Pollock-1352, Low R.6, PR67+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Bass-Simpson. James B. Longacre's obverse Indian Princess design was previously used on the Standard Silver coins of 1870-71, an outstanding seated Liberty in bold, medallic relief. The Indian princess holds a Liberty pole and cap and wears a feather headdress. Two flags are behind her, one of which bears 22 stars. There are 13 stars around, and a globe at her left hand with LIBERTY across. The reverse displays the Commercial dollar design, first executed in the previous year and weighing 420 grains, the predecessor to the adopted Trade dollar. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. About a dozen examples are known of this popular pattern. This Superb Gem proof is beautifully reflective, with strong cameo contrast, and fully struck surfaces showing amber-pink patina with a daub of blue on the reverse, a top-notch coin.
