1885 Snowden Dollar in Copper
1885 $1 Snowden Dollar, Judd-1748, Pollock-1960, R.6, PR67 Red
and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck in copper from regular
issue obverse and reverse dies. The edge is lettered instead of
reeded, and displays E PLURIBUS UNUM in raised letters. Perhaps 15
to 20 of these are known in copper with a similar quantity in
silver, and just under a dozen in aluminum. Once thought to be an
impossible dream, segmented collars to create raised edge lettering
were developed in the late 19th century. Roger Burdette relates the
important story at the USPatterns.com website. This Superb Gem
proof has vibrant blue and lilac toning with splashes of orange
mint color. PCGS Population: 3 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (4/20).
