Sale 63

Lot 1280

1878 Pattern Dollar. Copper, reeded edge. Judd-1555. Pollock-1734. Low Rarity 7. PCGS graded Proof 66 Red. Loaded with fiery mint red color. Satiny matte devices float atop mirrors that explode with intense luster and varying shades of rose to golden and brick red coppery hues. Keenly struck with just outstanding detail at the hair curls and the coronet with its leading edge of tiny round pearls. Continuing the trend of razor-like detail over to the reverse, we find an impeccable eagle whose broad expanse of plumage and chest feathers can be studied intimately with a magnifying glass. The viewer's eyes never tire when studying all the intricate detail. A coin that surpasses all other of Judd-1555s in many dimensions. Note the unusual type font that the coin's designer used for E PLURIBUS UNUM. A unique touch! Pop 1; none finer (PCGS # 81916) .
Estimated Value $25,000 - 28,000.
