    1880 Flowing Hair Stella in Gilt Copper
    Judd-1658, PR62

    1880 $4 Flowing Hair Four Dollar, Judd-1658 Gilt, Pollock-1858, Low R.7, PR62 NGC. The Charles Barber Flowing Hair design from the 1879 stellas is carried over here into a second year of production. But the two issues are hardly carbon copies, even though the design appears the same. On the 1880 pieces, the date is unusually small, shifted right, with the 0 in the date nearly touching the lowest hair curls. The reverse is a carbon copy, the same die carried over from the 1879 strikings. Struck in copper, gilt, with a reeded edge. Over a dozen copper examples are known with many of these gilt. The reason to gilt these is obvious: to visually simulate the much more expensive gold strikes at a fraction of the cost. The gilt finish has subdued the mirroring in the fields, but the layer of gold is intact throughout.
