    1879 Silver Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1605, PR63

    1879 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1605, Pollock-1801, Low R.7, PR63 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The Judd reference calls this William Barber obverse similar to the famous "Washlady" design, but to our eyes there are also similarities to the Coiled Hair stella obverse. Liberty's hair is tightly coiled about her head in a bun, with two flowing ribbons in back and a beaded headband inscribed LIBERTY. IN GOD WE TRUST and 13 stars appear around the rim, date below. The reverse shows a rather scrawny eagle inside a laurel wreath with evenly matched berry pairs. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around the rim -- the letters irregularly spaced -- and ONE DOLLAR is below. The motto is in small letters above the eagle. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Each side is mostly brilliant with the occasional dab of toning around the letters and other devices. Light hairlines and a few minor scuffs account for the grade.
