1870 Pattern Silver Dollar. Aluminum, reeded edge. Judd-1018. Pollock-1153. PCGS graded Proof 65 Cameo. High Rarity 7. Well struck and brilliant white. The only example graded at PCGS A full-Gem Proof 65 Cameo example of Longacre's marvelous Indian Princess design, here seen in the most-desired Dollar format. The obverse depicts James B. Longacres rendition of Liberty seated, left, her hand supporting a pole with Phrygian cap on top, right hand upon on a globe of the world. Behind, conjoined flags. The reverse is of the regular design for the Seated Dollar from that years Proof die. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. The surfaces are vibrant and gleaming fresh, with no haze or toning on either side, which enhances the bright frosted cameo contrast of aluminum on the high raised devices. Identifiable as the finest certified by PCGS and a sure winner in any top end Pattern coin collection! Pop 1. The only example graded at PCGS.

Historic Note: This year marks the appearance of the "Standard" reverses for the silver coins from the half dime to the dollar. Probably because of lack of time to prepare suitable obverse dies, these reverses were combined with the obverses of 1869 and a new seated Liberty design by Barber. When this reverse design was combined with the Barber obverse design for the quarter, half and silver dollar and with the Longacre design for a silver dollar, unintentional mules resulted since United States of America does not appear on either side. (The "Standard Silver" series of dimes, quarters and half dollars of 1869 were again issued dated 1870.).
Estimated Value $12,000 - 14,000.

Realized $26,450
