    1880 Coiled Hair Metric Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-1650, PR65 Cameo

    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.
