    Glittering Gem Cameo Proof 1880 Metric Dollar in Aluminum

    1880 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1653, Pollock-1853, R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. The obverse portrait 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. This is a spot-free Gem specimen with appreciable field-to-contrast. Only a few wispy vertical slidemarks on the cheek preclude an otherwise deserved Superb rating.
