    1879 Judd-1617 Metric Dollar, PR65
    William Barber's Design

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4, PR65 NGC. William Barber's Metric Dollar with Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. 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 with a reeded edge.

    This pattern was struck in both standard silver and metric alloys, but NGC does not make this distinction on their inserts. However, for its 2001 Heritage auction appearance, the present piece was sent to the ANA, where their Authentication Plus service evaluated the planchet to be a metric alloy of 94% silver, 2% gold, and 4% copper. These percentages vary somewhat from the Mint's intended metric alloy of 89.58% silver, 0.42% gold, and 10% copper. Since gold is present in this planchet, however, it undoubtedly falls into the metric classification. For comparison, the Mint's standard silver alloy is 90% silver and 10% copper.

    A beautiful Gem, the surfaces are uniformly mirrored beneath dappled sun-gold toning. Fully struck, and undisturbed aside from light horizontal marks on the central reverse.
    Ex: Atlanta Signature (Heritage, 8/2001), lot 8401; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 2056.
