    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1628, PR65 Red

    1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1628, Pollock-1824, R.7, PR65 Red NGC. William Barber's design for the Goloid Metric dollar with a large head of Liberty facing left and LIBERTY on a wide ribbon around her head. The reverse is laid out with the proposed composition of the coin in the center, surrounded by a circle of 38 stars. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. While this is a William Barber design, it is possible this was executed by his son, Charles. This Goloid Metric design was struck in goloid, silver, copper, aluminum, and white metal. Each side is full red with just the thinnest lines of lilac in the center of the reverse. Sharply defined throughout, only a few small specks of carbon can be found on the obverse, virtually none on the reverse.
    From The Siegel Collection.
