    1878 Silver Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1555, PR67+ Red and Brown
    Numerically Finest at PCGS

    1878 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1555, Pollock-1738, Low R.7, PR67+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A head of Liberty faces left, wearing a coronet inscribed LIBERTY. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is above with the date below. The left obverse field has seven stars near the border with six more along the right border. The reverse has an eagle with wings spread, holding an olive branch and three arrows. The statutory legend is above and the denomination is below, with E PLURIBUS UNUM in the field above the eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. About a baker's dozen examples are known of Judd-1555. The present lot is numerically finest at PCGS (11/12). The ocean-blue toning is exquisite, and glimpses of cherry-red and sun-gold also visit protected regions. The strike is sharp and there are no detractions. The Pollock subvariety with the upright of the B in PLURIBUS between the TE in STATES. Among the four Pollock subvarieties, P-1734 is the most available, and Pollock-1742 is the rarest, with no Heritage auction appearances in this century.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best. Consign with Heritage when you're ready to sell.
