    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar in Goloid
    Judd-1626, PR65

    1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1626, Pollock-1822, R.4, PR65 PCGS. William Barber's design for the Goloid Metric dollar with a capped head of Liberty on the obverse, paired with a reverse that carries the statutory as well as elemental inscriptions. A circle of stars about the central inscriptions breaks the otherwise continuous wording. STATES is unevenly spaced, a minor diesinking error unusual for the era. Struck in goloid (a silver alloy that includes a small portion of gold) with a reeded edge. The surfaces display lighter, even toning on the obverse, while the reverse is patinated in deeper hues of rose, yellow, and cobalt-blue. Despite its availability, the Goloid Metric dollar is surprisingly unavailable in Gem or finer grades. Population: 8 in 65 (2 in 65+), 3 finer (4/21).
