    1872 Commercial Dollar in Silver, PR63
    Judd-1214, Barber Indian Princess Obverse

    1872 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1214, Pollock-1355, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. William Barber's lower-relief adaptation of James B. Longacre's Indian Princess design, used posthumously after Longacre's death on January 1, 1869. Liberty is seated left, holding a pole topped by a Phrygian cap and a world globe inscribed LIBERTY. Two flags flank her, one showing 13 stars, several of which are blatantly repunched. The reverse bears some of the motifs and inscriptions that would appear again the following year on Trade dollars: 420 GRS. / 900 FINE and COMMERCIAL / DOLLAR in the center, an olive wreath with the motto GOD OUR TRUST on a scroll, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the top rim. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    About a half-dozen examples of this appealing design survive today. This Select proof is well-struck and lightly toned in rose hues. A few scattered ticks and hairlines are trivial but account for the grade. Population: 1 in 63, 1 finer (9/20).
