    1876 Liberty by the Seashore Dollar
    Judd-1470, PR63
    Ex: Harry Bass

    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 remain in existence 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. William H. Woodin; H.O. Granberg; Quality Sales Corp. (Abner Kreisberg, 11/1970), lot 1307; Harry W. Bass, Jr. (Bowers and Merena), lot 1272; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1528; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2011), lot 5383. The present example.

    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. (PCGS# 61792)
