1876 Liberty by the Seashore Dollar
Struck in Silver, Judd-1470, PR63
Only Two Specimens Known

1876 $1 Dollar, Judd-1470, Pollock-1621, R.8, PR63 PCGS. Ex: H.W. Bass, Jr. The obverse has the famous Liberty by the Seashore design in a plain field with IN GOD WE TRUST just above the date. The reverse is the standard design for the Seated Liberty dollar type Without Motto, used again more than a decade after it was removed from service. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. According to Saul Teichman, just two examples were actually struck, and both survive today. The two known examples are:
--PR65 NGC. William H. Woodin; Waldo Newcomer; F.C.C. Boyd; King Farouk; Dr. J. Hewitt Judd; Abe Kosoff; Bowers and Merena (11/1985); Novoselsky; Kagin's.
--PR63 PCGS. The present example. William H. Woodin; H.O. Granberg; Quality Sales Corp. (Abner Kreisberg, 11/1970), lot 1307; Harry W. Bass, Jr. (Bowers and Merena), lot 1272; Jones Beach Collection (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1528, which realized $34,500.
This piece is fully brilliant and sharply struck with reflective proof surfaces. Evidence remains that this piece has been lacquered, a popular preservation method many years ago and easily removed without damage to the coin. The opportunity to buy an example of a variety with just two pieces known rarely presents itself, and the opportunity to add an 1876 pattern silver dollar, especially struck in silver, is exceptionally important.
From The McCoy Family Collection of U.S. Patterns. (PCGS# 61792)
