    1879 Metric Dollar in Silver or Goloid
    Judd-1622, PR68 Cameo

    1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1622, Pollock-1818, Low R.7, PR68 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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. This is one of the designs that would have been included in three-coin sets alongside a Coiled Hair stella and a Goloid Metric dollar. All three formed part of Dr. William Wheeler Hubbell's failed scheme for an international coinage. About a dozen examples of Judd-1622 are known. This extraordinary Superb Gem enjoys a thin veneer of golden color over beautifully contrasted surfaces, with frosty devices and mirrored fields. Absolutely pristine and unsurpassed.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
