    Proof 1879 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4, PR61 NGC. William Barber's Metric dollar with Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. 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. Without metallurgical testing it is impossible to know the exact composition these pieces were struck in. This is a sharply struck pearl-gray specimen with slightly subdued reflectivity and a few delicate field hairlines. The margins display minor mint-made retained laminations.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AH8, PCGS# 61995)
