1870 Barber Seated Dollar in Silver
1870 $1 Dollar, Judd-1002, Pollock-1134, Low R.6, PR66 PCGS.
CAC. Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. The William Barber Seated
Liberty design. A seated Liberty faces left, with 13 stars ringing
the rim and the date 1870 in exergue. She holds a shield with her
right hand and an olive branch in her left. A cap rests atop a
Liberty pole, and a scroll crosses the shield with LIBERTY raised
above the ribbon. Regular-issue Seated silver dollar reverse.
Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
More than a dozen pieces were sold as part of complete silver sets from the half dime through the dollar, each coin featuring this design combination. This Premium Gem, formerly included in the esteemed Eliasberg Collection, showcases intermixed shades of peach-orange, ocean-blue, and rose-violet patina over flashy fields and pinpoint-sharp, modestly frosted motifs.
Ex: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 278.
