    Extremely Rare 1877 Judd-1543
    Copper Dollar, PR65 Red and Brown

    1877 $1 Dollar, Judd-1543, Pollock-1716, High R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. This unusual design shows the obverse of Liberty facing left, her hair bound by a coronet. On the extreme left side of the coronet there is a single bead that is isolated from the others. The motto is in small letters above the figure of Liberty and the date is below; 13 stars ring the left and right margins. The reverse has 1 DOLLAR in the center surrounded by a wreath of corn, wheat, and cotton with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and E PLURIBUS UNUM below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
    This amazing Gem is almost entirely brilliant with orange mint luster on both sides with lovely accents of jade and violet. Both sides possess exceptional aesthetic desirability. A few tiny specks appear on Liberty's face and neck, but otherwise the surfaces are pristine.
