    1878 Barber-Design Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1554, Scarce Pollock-1737 Variant
    PR65 Cameo

    1878 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1554, Pollock-1737, R.7, PR65 Cameo 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 Pollock variant 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. This is a much scarcer variant than the usually seen Pollock-1733. The fields are deeply mirrored and provide a strong background for the frosted devices. Light golden-blue streaks of color are seen on each side.
