1871 Longacre Starless Set 1

James B. Longacre's seated liberty design without stars combined with the "Standard" wreath reverse die. It was executed by William Barber as Longacre had died in 1869. It is one of 4 design types produced this year.

Sets were produced in silver, copper and aluminum. Some dollars were produced with plain edges. Original sets are extremely rare. The Garrett silver set which included a plain edged dollar was sold piecemeal in the Garrett I and II sales and has since been reassembled. The set was later offered in ANR's 10/05 and B/M 6/10 sales.
