    AU50 1879 Flowing Hair Stella

    1879 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1635, Pollock-1833, R.3, PR50 PCGS. The Four Dollar Gold Piece, or Stella, is a curious piece that was proposed by John Kasson as an international coin whose value would be roughly equivalent to that of an Austrian 8 Florin. The coin was designed by Charles Barber in 1879 after a design his father, William, had executed in the previous year. That same year 15 pieces were struck as patterns (Judd-1635) and then widely distributed around Washington circles to popularize the proposed new denomination, but were soon forgotten when the international gold coin was rejected by Congress. This is one of the 400 restrikes from 1880. The fields are reflective with moderate to heavy abrasions, even wear on the highpoints, and green-gold coloration. A rare and popular issue in a grade, and price range, seldom offered at auction. (NGC ID# 28AZ, PCGS# 8057)
