1878 Barber Silver Dollar in Silver, PR66
1878 $1 Dollar, Judd-1554, Pollock-1737, R.7, PR66 PCGS. Ex:
Simpson. 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. Struck in
silver with a reeded edge. USPatterns.com and research by Roger
Burdette suggests that 50 or more examples of this pattern were
struck in various alloys and from various die pairs. The
Pollock-1737 variant of Judd-1554 shows three beads above the Y in
LIBERTY and Liberty's coronet is closer to the N in IN. On the
reverse, the upright of the B in PLURIBUS is under the tip of the E
in STATES, and the M in UNUM runs past the M in AMERICA.
Pollock-1737 is scarcer than the more often seen Pollock-1733
variant of this Judd number.
Judd-1554, Rare Pollock-1737 Variant
This high-grade example is sharply struck and deeply reflective, with dusky lilac-gray, gold, and ocean-blue toning over each side in a mottled fashion. Eye appeal is outstanding.
