    1880 Metric Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1646, PR60 Red and Brown

    1880 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1646, Pollock-1846, R.7, PR60 Red and Brown PCGS. 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. Over a dozen examples are known in copper. This example is bright from cleaning with the subsequent red surfaces one would expect, only slightly subdued now with occasional brown patina.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
