    1882 Shield Earring Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1703, PR66+ Red and Brown

    1882 $1 Shield Earring Dollar, Judd-1703, Pollock-1905, R.7, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The Shield Earring design of George T. Morgan. A youthful Liberty faces right wearing a band with the usual inscription, the band compressing the back portion of her hair. She wears a shield-shaped earring, with stars six left, seven right, date 1882 below. On the reverse a perched, defiant eagle occupies the center, clutching an olive branch and arrows. The design is reminiscent of the Flying Eagle cent and Gobrecht dollar reverses, although facing right. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and ONE DOLLAR are the peripheral legends. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is a magnificent Schoolgirl dollar. The fields are bright and highly reflective, while the devices are heavily frosted. A Cameo designation would not be out of place on this piece. The fields display variegated tan, blue, and yellow-rose patina that is greatly enhanced by the mirrored proof finish.
