    1880 Metric Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1646, PR67 Red

    1880 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1646, Pollock-1846, Low R.6, PR67 Red NGC. William Barber's Metric dollar depicts Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. The elaborate reverse displays a partial wreath of cotton and corn tied at the base, a ribbon, and the motto DEO EST GLORIA within a cartouche above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This majestic design was taken from the 1877 half union. Examples were struck in silver or goloid, copper, and aluminum. More than a dozen copper pieces are known, but Red examples are definitely rare. The surfaces are red throughout, varying only in the shading and intensity of color. Each side is remarkably clean and problem-free with brightly reflective mirrors in the fields.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2017), lot 4440; Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2018), lot 4513.
