This Gem Cameo Flowing Hair Stella enjoys outstanding contrast between the frosted devices and the reflective fields. Yellow-gold surfaces exhibit blushes of reddish color and parallel striae, which are typical. A wonderful example of this famous type. DID YOU KNOW? The design and production of the Four Dollar Stellas of 1879 and 1880 coincided with significant changes in the Mint's engraving department. William Barber, who was appointed Chief Engraver after the death of James B. Longacre in 1869, fell ill and died on August 31, 1879 shortly after swimming in the ocean off the New Jersey shore. His son, Charles, who was hired as an Assistant Engraver in 1869, was chosen to replace his father as Chief Engraver on January 20, 1880. Only a few years earlier, in 1876, British engraver George T. Morgan was brought over from England to work alongside the younger Barber. These men would have a significant hand in producing many of the most famous designs in American coinage during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. NGC Price Guide...$270,000
