    Barber's "Sailor Head" Design on a Dollar Pattern

    1876 Dollar, Judd-1458A, Pollock-1607, R.7, PR 64 Red and Brown PCGS. William Barber's so-called "Sailor Head" design, that features Liberty facing left, wearing a coronet, her hair tied in the back with two ribbons trailing, thus resembling a sailor's cap. The reverse has ONE DOLLAR in the center and is surrounded by an olive wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and E PLURIBUS UNUM below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Evenly mellowed brown patina over each side except for an outline of flaming red around the devices. A few spots on the obverse account for the grade.
