    1880 Goloid Metric Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1653, PR68 Cameo
    Finest at PCGS

    1880 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1653, Pollock-1853, High R.7, PR68 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Weight: 54.6 grains. Diameter: 1.294 inches. Die alignment: 180 degrees. On the obverse, a head of Liberty faces left wearing a cap inscribed LIBERTY. The top of the cap is ornamented with ears of wheat, cotton leaves, and bolls. E PLURIBUS UNUM is at the top and the date 1880 is below with 13 peripheral stars arranged between. The central reverse expresses the composition of the denomination within a circle of 38 stars. The upper periphery displays the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination GOLOID METRIC DOLLAR, while the motto DEO EST GLORIA and 100 CENTS are at the lower border. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Examples were also struck in silver or goloid composition (Judd-1651) and copper (Judd-1652). Sold individually and as part of sets. USPatterns.com has traced only four examples of Judd-1653. This coin is the finest certified example at PCGS. NGC has certified a single specimen in PR67+ Cameo (1/21).

    The glowing silver-white surfaces of this Superb Gem are untoned, and both sides are silky-smooth from rim to rim. Both the technical quality and eye appeal are nothing short of breathtaking. The design elements are sharply detailed and the deeply reflective fields contrast boldly with the frosty devices. A few minor laminations (as struck) in the obverse field may help trace the pedigree of this important and rare specimen. Population: 1 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (1/21).
