    Attractive and Affordable 1879 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4, PR62 PCGS. This Metric dollar design features Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls, and it is similar to the design used on the 1877 $50 half union patterns. Allegedly designed by William Barber, this may have actually been executed by his son Charles. The reverse is quite elaborate 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 silver (or goloid) with a reeded edge. Lightly hairlined, the deeply reflective surfaces are toned a pleasing golden and lilac over each side.(#61995)
