    1876 Sailor Head Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1458a, PR67 Brown

    1876 $1 Sailor Head Silver Dollar, Judd-1458a, Pollock-1610, High R.7, PR67 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. On the obverse a head of Liberty faces left in a plain (starless) field, with only the date 1876 below. She wears a coronet inscribed LIBERTY in raised letters, and her hair is tied back with a ribbon. On the reverse a thick central laurel wreath frames ONE / DOLLAR, with the country reference above and Latin motto below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Saul Teichman of USPatterns.com has confirmed six examples of Judd-1458a, though he does not specifically list this Simpson coin in PR67 Brown. Four of those listed by Teichman are reportedly certified in the Red and Brown category, a fifth is silver plated, and a sixth is currently untraced. That coin may be this one, or this may be a previously unrecorded example. Glossy and beautifully preserved deep brown surfaces display primarily cobalt-blue patina with olive-gold accents.
