    1878 Barber Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1554, Pollock-1733, PR63

    1878 $1 Dollar, Judd-1554, Pollock-1733, R.7, PR63 PCGS. CAC. The head of Liberty is large and faces left with IN GOD WE TRUST at the top and the date below, similar to the pattern fifty dollar gold pieces from 1877. The reverse has a spread-winged eagle with E PLURIBUS UNUM in Gothic lettering above. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the top and ONE DOLLAR on the bottom rim. This is the Pollock variety with star 13 close to the curl and the upright of the B in PLURIBUS is beneath the right foot of the second T in STATES. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Research by Roger Burdette has revealed that at least 50 pieces of this design were struck between December 1, 1877 and January 2, 1878. What is not known, however, is how many of each of the four die varieties are represented by this mintage. The surfaces are mostly untoned with just a bit of cloudiness present over each side, which probably prevents a Cameo designation. Peripherally toned.
