    1876 Sailor Head Dollar in Silver, Judd-1457 One of Only Two Examples Known

    1876 $1 Sailor Head Dollar, Judd-1457, Pollock-1606, R.8, PR62 PCGS. William Barber's Sailor Head design, presented without stars or the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. The reverse displays a laurel wreath and three statutory legends. The reverse die is familiar to pattern specialists of this important date, since it was used for Judd-1457 through Judd-1469. This range includes five designs, each of which was struck in three varieties: silver, copper with a reeded edge, and copper with a plain edge. All 1876 silver dollar patterns are extremely rare, yet well known because of their Sailor Head or Liberty at the Seashore motifs. This brilliant and intricately struck piece has moderate cameo contrast. Wispy field hairlines and a hair-thin line above the jaw are appropriate for the grade. Certified in a green label holder. According to uspatterns.com, only two examples of Judd-1457 are known, and the pedigree is given as
    Ex: William Woodin; H.O. Granberg; Abe Kosoff 1/68 Fixed Price List; Sotheby's 12/73, lot 282; Rogers M. Fred, Jr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 11/95), lot 2296.
