    1878 Silver Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1555, PR66 Red
    Finest Certified Pollock-1742

    1878 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1555, Pollock-1742, Low R.7, PR66 Red PCGS. 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. Although only 12 to 15 specimens are known of Judd-1555, Pollock documented four different positional varieties. On Pollock-1742, star 13 is distant from the shoulder curl, relative to his varieties 1734, 1738, and 1746. Since the year 2000, there have been 16 Heritage auction appearances of Judd-1555 patterns, but only a single piece, the New Millennium Collection specimen we offered in 2003 and 2007, is additionally Pollock-1742. It is likely that the present lot is the single finest example of the variety. It is certainly the single finest certified by NGC or PCGS. It is a magnificent fully-struck Premium Gem with orange-gold color and noticeable contrast between the radiant devices and the unblemished fields.
