1876 Liberty by the Seashore Dollar
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.
