Metric Dollar "Barber's Head" Patterns
1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1618, Pollock-1813, R.5

William Barber's Metric Dollar with Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. The reverse is elaborately laid out with a partial wreath of cotton and corn tied at the base, a ribbon, and with DEO EST GLORIA on a tablet above, all surrounding the elemental composition of goloid. Presumably struck in silver, rather than goloid, with a reeded edge.

1879 $1 Metric Dollar, Judd-1617, Pollock-1813, R.4

William Barber's Metric dollar with Liberty wearing a coronet with a border of pearls. The reverse is elaborately laid out with a partial wreath of cotton and corn tied at the base, a ribbon, and with DEO EST GLORIA on a tablet above. Struck in goloid or silver with a reeded edge. Without metallurgical testing it is impossible to know what composition these pieces were struck in.
