    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar
    Judd-1631, PR65

    1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1631, Pollock-1828, Low R.7, PR65 PCGS.
    Ex: Simpson. The obverse bears the George T. Morgan Coiled Head design of Liberty facing left, which will likely be familiar to many collectors from the famous Coiled Head stella patterns of 1879 and 1880. The reverse shows a circle of stars enclosing 15.3 -- G. / 236.7 -- S. / 28 -- C. 14 GRAMS. GOLOID METRIC DOLLAR. is above, DEO EST GLORIA. below, and around the rim UNITED STATES OF AMERICA / 100 CENTS. Struck in silver or goloid metal with a reeded edge.

    As with so many pattern issues, it would require extensive elemental analysis to determine the exact metallic composition of these coins. Despite their purported composition occupying the center reverse, comments that "it would be interesting to test these to see if any are actually goloid." This is an appearing, well-mirrored near-Gem proof with gold-amber toning on both sides and an excellent strike. Some diagonal planchet striations appear on the reverse. PCGS reports two finer of this issue, both PR65 (9/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AHK, PCGS# 62009)
