    1879 Metric Dollar in Silver or Goloid
    Judd-1617, PR55

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4, PR55 PCGS. William Barber's Metric dollar with Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls, similar in design to the half union patterns from 1877. The reverse is elaborately laid out with a partial wreath of cotton and corn tied at the base, a ribbon, and with DEO EST GLORIA on a tablet above. Struck in goloid or silver with a reeded edge. Slight rub over the high points explain the AU55 designation. Mostly a "black and white" piece with the recesses charcoal gray and the open areas such as Liberty's cheek and the fields untoned.
