    Desirable 1885 Snowden Dollar Struck in Copper

    1885 $1 Snowden Dollar, Judd-1748, Pollock-1960, R.6-7, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse and reverse dies are the same as those used to produce regular issue 1885 Morgan Dollars. Struck in copper with an experimental lettered edge that reads E PLURIBUS UNUM. The individual words around the edge are separated by stars. This high grade Snowden Dollar is partially lustrous with orange-red color peering through mottled glossy-brown patina. Sharply struck, the surfaces are free of bothersome contact marks, although a few faint swirls of haziness are noted in the left obverse field.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2ALU, PCGS# 72190)
