    1876 Trade Dollar Pattern, PR66 Cameo
    Rare Judd-1467, Silver
    Ex: Woodin, Newcomer, Boyd, Farouk, Judd
    The USPatterns.com, Pollock Plate Coin

    1876 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1467, Pollock-1618, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The obverse shows Liberty seated on the seashore, holding an olive branch, with conjoined flags behind her. A steamship is in the distance. Liberty's left hand rests on a globe inscribed LIBERTY, although the word is rather weakly impressed on this example. Between the base and the date, IN GOD WE TRUST is presented in a cartouche. The reverse is rather plainly laid out with ONE DOLLAR in the center, surrounded by an olive wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the upper margin and E PLURIBUS UNUM in small letters at the bottom of that side. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Pattern 1876 dollars are very rare and many advanced collectors lack an example. Only five representatives of Judd-1467 are alleged to have been struck, with just four pieces traced today. A roster of the known examples is given below. These pieces were struck on Trade dollar planchets, implying that they are legitimate Trade dollar patterns. The present coin is the finest, separated from the Simpson coin by the Cameo designation. Its pedigree is impressive. The surfaces show a few faint hairlines with no obvious or distracting blemishes on either side. Light golden toning is seen along the border on each side with much lighter, almost brilliant centers. The fields of this Premium Gem Cameo are deeply mirrored against lustrous devices.
