    1879 Metric Dollar in Silver or Goloid
    Judd-1622, PR67 Cameo
    Extraordinary Preservation

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1622, Pollock-1818, Low R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. Metric dollar pattern designed by George Morgan, featuring a rarely used head of Liberty with hair brushed back and fastened in a bun and with a wide ribbon at the top of the head. The reverse is the standard Metric dollar design with DEO EST GLORIA featured prominently above the composition in the center. Struck in silver or goloid with a reeded edge. There are a dozen or so examples of this metallic variant, but it is not known if any are actually goloid or if they are all silver. Pieces were also struck in copper, aluminum, and white metal. This is a magnificent piece whose surfaces are nearly perfect. The fields are deeply mirrored and the frosted devices provide strong cameo contrast. Brilliant throughout.
