    1879 Metric Dollar in Goloid or Silver
    Judd-1617, Lightly Toned PR63

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4, PR63 NGC. 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. Without metallurgical testing it is impossible to visually tell if a piece was struck from silver or goloid composition. Several hundred pieces are known. Much rarer are the copper and aluminum examples. This example displays pale golden-rose and lilac toning over each side with strong mirroring in the fields.
