    1878 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1563, Pollock-1754, Low R.6, PR65+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. Liberty faces left, with cap adorned with wheat ears, cotton leaves and bolls, eponymously inscribed in incuse letters. There are 13 stars around the rim, with the Latin motto above and date below. On the reverse the center reads GOLOID / METRIC / 1--G. / 16.1--S. / 1.9--C. / GRAMS 14.25. within a circle of 38 stars. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above, 100 CENTS below. Allegedly struck in goloid alloy, but possibly silver as metallurgical analysis has not been conducted on these pieces, with a reeded edge.

    The Eliasberg specimen is a high-end Gem Cameo with a pedigree extending back to the Chapman Brothers' Brown sale in April 1897. The surfaces are sharp and deeply mirrored, with a dusting of lilac-gold toning over otherwise brilliant fields.
