    1878 Barber-Designed Dollar Pattern
    Judd-1554, Pollock-1741, PR62

    1878 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1554, Pollock-1741, R.5, PR62 PCGS. 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 is the Pollock variety with star 13 distant from the curl and the upright of the B in PLURIBUS centered under the TE in STATES. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This is Barber's rejected dollar design. Roger Burdette has determined from investigation in Mint archives that at least 50 pieces were struck between December 1, 1877 and January 2, 1878. This is a nicely reflective example with no obvious impairments. Pale golden color is seen over each side. (NGC ID# 2AF5, PCGS# 61915)
