    1875 Commercial Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1424, PR65 Red and Brown
    Liberty at the Seashore

    1875 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1424, Pollock-1567, Low R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. A seated figure of Liberty faces left at the seashore, with 13 stars surrounding the rim and the date 1875 below. She holds an olive branch and rests her left hand on a globe reading LIBERTY. Two flags and a sheaf of wheat flank her. A steamship appears on the sea horizon. A scroll above the date reads IN GOD WE TRUST. On the reverse an olive wreath contains COMMERCIAL / (ornamental cornucopias) / DOLLAR / (ornaments) / 420 GRS / 900 FINE / (ornament), with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the rim. On the bow is the motto GOD OUR TRUST. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Adams and Woodin (1913) stated that eight pieces were struck in copper, the same number of pieces accounted for today. The "Liberty at the Seashore" pattern is famous for its incompatible wind directions on the steamship, which shows steam heading west and the sails billowing east. The well-struck surfaces are primarily cherry-red, with hints of sea-green on the left obverse field. One small spot southwest of star 1 provides an identifier. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 1 in 65 Red and Brown, 1 finer. CAC: 1 in 65, 1 finer (7/21).
    Ex: Bill Mitkoff, 9/1972; David Faraday; Detroit ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/1994) lot 6149.
