1879 Goloid Metric Dollar, Proof Details
1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1626, Pollock-1822, R.4 --
Cleaned -- ANACS. PR60 Details. The William Barber Goloid
Metric dollar designs pairs a capped Liberty Head with a reverse
carrying the statutory as well as elemental inscriptions. A circle
of stars about the central text breaks the otherwise continuous
wording. Purportedly struck in goloid (a silver alloy that includes
a small portion of gold) with a reeded edge. These were issued in
three-piece sets that also included the 1879 Flowing Hair stella in
gold (Judd-1635) and the 1879 silver Metric dollar design
(Judd-1617), which had an obverse similar to that used on the
famous fifty dollar (half union) gold patterns of 1877 (Judd-1546).
This piece shows somewhat muted luster and a few hairlines from a
light wiping at some point in the past, but it is retoning nicely
to pale rose-gold with plenty of reflectivity and eye appeal
despite the caveat.
