    1880 Goloid Metric Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1655, PR65 Brown

    1880 $1 Goloid Metric Dollar, Judd-1655, Pollock-1855, Low R.7, PR65 Brown NGC. On the obverse the head of Liberty has her hair braided and coiled at the back of her head and faces left. A band inscribed LIBERTY encircles her hair. This obverse design is a repeat of Morgan's coiled hair design used in 1879. There are 13 stars at the border, 7 left and 6 right. The inscription 15.3 - G. 236.7 - S. 28 - C. 14 GRAMS is centered within a circle of 38 stars on the reverse. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the denomination GOLOID METRIC DOLLAR are above the circle, and the motto DEO EST GLORIA and 100 CENTS are below. The reverse is one of very few patterns to express the denomination in two different ways. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This unusual design is similar to that featured on gold, silver, and copper life-saving medals issued by the State Department beginning around 1880. The fields are deeply mirrored on each side with even brown patina that, when turned just so under a light, turns to iridescent blue and red. A lovely copper pattern with no visible flaws.
