1880 Coiled Hair Metric Dollar in Aluminum
1880 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1650, Pollock-1850, Low R.7, PR65
Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Metric dollar pattern designed by
George Morgan, featuring a rarely seen head of Liberty. Her hair is
brushed back, and fastened in a bun with a wide ribbon at the top
of the head. The reverse is the standard Metric dollar design with
DEO EST GLORIA featured prominently above the composition in the
center. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. About a half dozen
examples are known in this metal. They would have been sold as part
of three-piece sets, which also would have included an 1880 Coiled
Hair goloid dollar in aluminum and an 1880 Coiled Hair stella in
aluminum. This bright Gem enjoys lovely Cameo contrast and
razor-sharp design definition. A small toning spot on the rim below
OL in DOLLAR identifies this particular example.
