1878 Barber Silver Dollar in White Metal, PR62
1878 $1 Dollar, Judd-1556a, Pollock-1744, R.8, PR62 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 white metal with a reeded edge. Pollock only lists this single
example, as does Judd, and USPatterns.com supports the assessment
that it is probably unique. This piece has the darker gray accents
of color from oxidation (as always seen on white metal coins) with
considerable underlying brilliance still in evidence. This is only
its second known auction appearance in more than four decades.
