Copper 1875 Commercial Dollar
Judd-1424, PR64 Red and Brown

1875 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1424, Pollock-1567, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown NGC. A seated figure of Liberty faces left at the seashore, with 13 stars ringing the rim and the date 1875 below. Liberty 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 On the bow tying the wreath a second reference to the Deity appears, this time the outdated GOD OUR TRUST. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
Wisps of pale violet and orange complement the considerable dollops of mint red that cling to the surfaces on each side. This well-struck specimen is free of mentionable distractions, with appeal suggestive of an even finer grade.
