    1877 Silver Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1543, PR65+ Red and Brown
    One of Only Four Known

    1877 $1 Dollar, Judd-1543, Pollock-1716, High R.7, PR65+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Bass-Simpson. This William Barber design shows the obverse of Liberty facing left, her hair bound by a coronet. The motto is in small letters above the figure of Liberty and the date is below. 13 stars are arranged seven left and six right. 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 die combination was not struck in another alloy. Beautifully toned with cherry-red and electric-blue shades intermingled across exemplary surfaces. The strike is sharp, and the sole imperfection is a tiny spot on Liberty's jaw. Per USPatterns.com, there are only four known examples of Judd-1543.
