    1876 Liberty by the Seashore Commercial Dollar
    Struck in Silver
    Judd-1472, Two Known, PR61

    1876 T$1 Commercial Dollar, Judd-1472, Pollock-1623, R.8, PR61 PCGS. Liberty by the Seashore obverse with the date and IN GOD WE TRUST below. The reverse has COMMERCIAL DOLLAR and 420 GRS, 900 FINE within a wreath, the branches tied by a ribbon with the motto GOD OUR TRUST and the statutory legend around. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Adams and Woodin commented: "But two specimens said to have been struck." Today, two examples are known, the other piece somewhat finer:
    --PR64 PCGS. William H. Woodin; Waldo Newcomer; F.C.C. Boyd; King Farouk (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1965; Dr. J. Hewitt Judd; Abe Kosoff (Bowers and Merena, 11/1985), lot 1100 (plated at lot 1099); American Numismatic Rarities (9/2003), lot 100; American Numismatic Rarities (6/2004), lot 1683.
    --PR61 PCGS. The present piece. William H. Woodin; H.O. Granberg; unknown intermediaries; Jones Beach Collection (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 1529, which realized $54,625.
    This example has bright silver surfaces with fully mirrored fields and a trace of hazy toning on the reverse. Close examination of the surfaces suggests the piece may have been lacquered at one time. A few wispy hairlines on each side keep it from a higher grade. There are few pedigree markers of any type on this piece, although a small toning spot is visible immediately below the R of TRUST on the reverse. To the best of our knowledge, this specimen was never offered for sale before its appearance in our 2007 FUN Signature auction, and clearly it was the subject of considerable demand, when there are two examples known (and this piece had eight different individual bidders). This piece should spur similar excitement the next time around.
    From The McCoy Family Collection of U.S. Patterns.
