1870 Pattern Silver Dollar. Copper, plain edge. Judd-1005. Pollock-1137. NGC graded Proof 65 Brown. Low Rarity 6. Wonderful bluish-brown iridescent toning on both sides. Feature's William Barber's modified seated Liberty design in which he switches Lady Liberty to facing left (on standard issue seated coins she faces right). William Barber was chief engraver at the Mint after the death of James B. Longacre in 1869. An older man (and father of Charles Barber, who would one day take his place as chief engraver), William Barber produced a number of interesting designs that appear on Pattern coins in the 1870s. The reverse is from the regular With Motto Proof die as used on production coins. A gem and rare thus. Pop 2; 3 finer in 66.
Estimated Value $4,500 - 5,000.

Realized $6,900
