    1879 Goloid Metric Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1632, PR66 Red and Brown
    Fabulous, Multicolored Toning

    1879 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1632, Pollock-1829, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. George Morgan's design for a goloid metric dollar with the bust of Liberty facing left on the obverse, hair braided and coiled at the back of her head, E PLURIBUS UNUM above and the date 1879 below, with stars on the left and right side. On the reverse, the elemental components are central to that side and surrounded by a small circle of stars, and two other circles of statutory requirements between the stars and the rim. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
    This incredible Premium Gem has splashes of deep orange mint color with amazing electric-blue, violet, and iridescent toning over the deeply mirrored obverse and reverse fields. The devices are brightly lustrous and the mirrored fields flash strongly through the iridescence. Population: 3 in 66 Red and Brown, 0 finer (11/10).
    Ex: William Mitkoff (2/1975).
