    Extremely Rare, Finest Known PR62
    Judd-1554A 1878 Silver Dollar

    1878 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1554A, Pollock-1745, R.8, PR62 NGC Similar to the "common" R.4 Judd-1554, but there are no stars on the reverse near 4 and 8 o'clock. The layout of the legends also differs slightly, with the B in PLURIBUS beneath the E in STATES. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. There is no listing for Pollock-1745 in his 1994 reference, but the author left a number for it before his copper Pollock-1746 struck from the same dies. USPatterns.com states two are known, the one photographed in the Judd 10th edition and another auctioned by Bowers and Merena in May 1994 as lot 1069. The present piece matches neither of those examples and is thus the third known. The other two grade PR40 or so, per USPatterns.com. This example has light gold toning and moderately abraded fields. A good strike with only minor softness at the centers.
