    1878 Goloid Metric Dollar
    Judd-1564, PR64

    1878 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1564, Pollock-1755, Low R.7, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A head of Liberty faces left on the obverse with 13 stars arranged seven before and six after. Liberty wears a cap inscribed LIBERTY and ornamented with wheat, cotton leaves, and bolls. E PLURIBUS UNUM is at the top and the date 1878 is below. On the reverse, 38 stars encircle the inscription GOLOID / METRIC. / 1 - G. / 16.1 - S. / 1.9 - C. / GRAMS 14.25. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above and the denomination expressed as 100 CENTS is below. Presumably struck in standard silver alloy (90% silver, 10% copper) with a reeded edge. These are reported to have been struck in silver and in W.W. Hubbell's goloid composition (5.26% gold, 84.74% silver, and 10.00% copper), but according to USPatterns.com, "these have never been confirmed by metallurgical analysis." Silvery-gray surfaces are smooth, if somewhat muted, with areas of chestnut-gold toning mainly on the reverse. Fully struck at the centers.
