    1877 Sailor Head Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1542, PR67 Red and Brown

    1877 $1 Dollar, Judd-1542, Pollock-1715, Low R.7, PR67 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Bass-Simpson. The obverse shows a bust of Liberty facing left with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST above and the date 1877 below. On the reverse, the denomination 1 DOLLAR is centered within a wreath of corn, wheat, and cotton. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around the upper periphery, E PLURIBUS UNUM is around the lower periphery. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    At least seven examples of Judd-1542 are known, according to USPatterns.com. This Superb Gem features glossy, mostly red surfaces with occasional accents of blue and light brown toning. Under magnification a few die finishing lines can be seen on the obverse, evidence that Charles Barber spent some time finessing this die.
