    1876 'Liberty by the Seashore' Dollar
    Judd-1467, Struck in Silver, PR66+
    Five Coins Struck

    1876 $1 Dollar, Judd-1467, Pollock-1618, High R.7, PR66+ PCGS. CAC. 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. Liberty's left hand rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY, although the word is rather weak on all examples we have seen. Between the base and the date, IN GOD WE TRUST is presented in a cartouche. The reverse shows ONE DOLLAR in the center surrounded by an olive wreath. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA rings the upper margin and E PLURIBUS UNUM in small letters at the bottom reverse. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    It is said (by Adams and Woodin) that just five were struck, and that is the number known today. They were struck on Trade dollar planchets, suggesting that this pattern variety was intended as a Trade dollar pattern, even though the reverse inscription suggests otherwise. The Judd-1467, 1468, and 1469 patterns should be classified among the many U.S. Trade dollar patterns produced in the 1870s.

    This Premium Gem is tied with the King Farouk specimen as the finest certified, and its aesthetic appeal might even give it the edge over the Farouk coin. Both sides have fully mirrored fields and frosty devices, generating partial cameo contrast beneath the gorgeous gray-gold surfaces. The borders have delightful blue and iridescent peripheral toning. The overall appearance is entirely original and pristine, easily a coin for those who desire the best available quality.
