1871 Pattern Silver Dollar. Copper, reeded edge. J-1147, R.6. PCGS graded Proof 65 Red. A remarkable, nearly full red example of Longacre's popular Indian Princess design. Housed in an older-generation, green label PCGS holder, thus hinting at the possibility of an upgrade. Tied for the finest graded at both services, with a population of only three examples in this grade at PCGS.
The Indian Princess was one of the icons used to represent America in the late to early 1800's; the use of the image in 1871 was a bit of an anachronism, but it was also part of America's fascination with its indigenous people. The reverse featured the "With Motto" design type used on regular issue Silver Dollars of the period. Estimated Value $14,000 - 16,000
