I'm new to the forums here and not posted much yet but I do come across a lot of interesting stuff,like this....

Its a judd 996 I think, Barber pattern dollar in silver. They only made 24 of these I believe.
But the owner and I couldn't come to a price. He seemed to think it would bring in excess of 9k (which is true by past auction prices of slabbed MS62+ coins!...) even though I showed him how it had been "wiped" at some time in the past and the fields were rather undesireable. None the less, a really cool coin to see up close and have right there in you hands!

regards, m

Very exotic coin, rare and valuable despite the impairment. IMO a coin like this should be slabbed for authentication purposes if not for grade. Maybe the seller doesn't believe in slabs, or maybe he realizes it would likely go in a "Genuine" slab at PCGS or a Details slab at NGC and therefore would be harder to sell for $9,000.

I agree it looks like the "Standard Silver Dollar" Judd 996 but according to Heritage that pattern has a reeded edge. Judd 997 is silver with an identical design but a plain edge so I would assume that is the correct ID for this coin. Heritage sold one graded NGC PR-64 Cameo for $9200 in 2009. The coin you posted is a Cameo but can't compare to the Heritage coin in quality due to the hairlines. IMO the price should be a couple grand less than what the seller is asking.

There were a whole boatload of 1870 patterns struck, in silver, copper, and aluminum, in dollar, half dollar, and quarter dollar denominations, with plain and reeded edges. For a real challenge try assembling a complete year set!

Well, I think he, the owner realizes he needs to slab the coin in any event. As for price, I offered him 3k for it. Pinnacle out in Oregon (?) said it's a hard sell for high prices when you've got problems like this. But what a coin eh?
