    1876 Liberty by the Seashore Dollar
    Struck in Silver, Judd-1467, PR63

    1876 $1 Dollar, Judd-1467, Pollock-1618, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse shows Liberty seated on the seashore, holding an olive branch, with conjoined flags behind her. A steamship is in the distance. The reverse is rather plainly laid out with ONE DOLLAR in the center, surrounded by an olive wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the upper margin and E PLURIBUS UNUM in small letters at the bottom of that side. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The pattern dollars dated 1876 are rare, and many advanced collectors lack an example. Only five pieces are alleged to have been struck of this particular pattern, with only three traced today. These pieces were struck on Trade dollar planchets, implying that these are legitimate Trade dollar patterns. The surfaces are lightly hairlined with no obvious or distracting blemishes on either side. Light, smoky gray-golden toning is seen on each side with much lighter, almost brilliant centers. Nice proof reflectivity in the fields. In addition to an excellent pattern collection, Rogers Murray Fred, Jr. assembled a world-class collection of Assay Commission medals. A wonderful gentleman, Mr. Fred passed away just under four years ago at the age of 90.
