1871 Pattern Silver Dollar. Copper, reeded edge. . J-1147. . High Rarity 6. . P-1289. NGC graded Proof 66 Brown. In NGC holder 1727015-013. A magnificent gem example! Light sea-green, blue and golden brown iridescense. James Longacre's Indian Princess obverse with stars around and date below. Reverse as the regular issue. This spectacular coin has aqua blue toning, color that strikes the eye immediately in sharp contrast with the deeper chocolate brown surfaces which provides a foundation for the sharp relief elements of the design. Turned in the left, turned to the right, the blue iridescence jumps from the entire surface. Close inspection reveals faint accents of violet as well. A most unusual appearance, but striking, very beautiful and rare so fine. Pop 1; none finer at NGC (PCGS # 61409) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.

Realized $11,500
