    1876 $1 Sailor Head Dollar, Judd-1465, Pollock-1616, High R.7--Plated--NCS. Proof. The obverse depicts William Barber's Sailor Head, here with beads on the coronet and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST centered across the upper border.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
