    1875 Commercial Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1424, PR67 Red and Brown

    1875 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1424, Pollock-1567, Low R.7, PR67 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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 with sails appears in the water, with sails billowing in one direction and steam blowing in the opposite direction. 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 On the bow tying the wreath a second reference to the Deity appears, this time with the outdated GOD OUR TRUST. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Adams and Woodin (1913) stated that eight pieces were struck in copper, and that is the number of pieces accounted for today. This is a lovely example with exhibits considerable underlying mint red on each side, while the lower reverse displays bright blue toning. Nearly flawless surfaces.
