About the item

1871 Pattern Dollar. Judd-1138a, Pollock-1276. Rarity-8. Silver. Reeded Edge. Proof-61 (PCGS).Obv: Chief Engraver James Barton Longacre's Indian Princess motif with 13 stars around the border. Liberty is seated left wearing a Native American headdress, her left hand resting atop a globe inscribed LIBERTY and her right hand supporting a liberty pole. Two flags are behind the portrait, one of which is ornamented with 13 stars, and the date 1871 is below. Rev: The same design that the Mint used to strike regular issue 1871 Liberty Seated silver dollars. Brilliant apart from the lightest reddish-gold rim toning, this is an appreciably cameoed specimen with superior eye appeal at the assigned grade level. Judd-1138a is a significant rarity, although it is not as rare as the Rarity-8 ranking in the leading pattern references might imply. The uspatterns.com website lists four specimens, and the present example is a fifth. The dies for this type were implemented by William Barber as Longacre died in 1869.Provenance: From the E. Horatio Morgan Collection. Earlier from Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions' sale of May 1988, lot 1129, where it was misattributed as Judd-1145.PCGS Population: 1; 2 finer (both Proof-63).PCGS# 61399.Click here for certification details from PCGS.
