    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar, Struck in Goloid
    Judd-1617, Toned PR63

    1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Metric Dollar with Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. The reverse is quite elaborate with a partial wreath of cotton and corn tied at the base, a ribbon, and with DEO EST GLORIA on a tablet above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The Goloid Metric dollar is a relatively common pattern, yet few examples have undergone metallurgical testing to determine if they are indeed goloid or just struck from a silver planchet -- the difference is indistinguishable to the unaided eye. However, this piece states Goloid on the insert, suggesting it was tested and the experimental alloy was used for this piece. Each side is deeply toned, mostly in shades of deep blue and golden-rose.
