Description:
1879 Morgan-Design Dime in Copper
Judd-1587, PR66 Red
1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1587, Pollock-1780, High R.6, PR66 Red NGC. CAC.
Design.
The obverse depicts a head of Liberty facing left with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date, 1879, below. The head is essentially a miniature of that featured on the regular issue Morgan dollar. On the reverse, the denomination ONE DIME, the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM, and an arc of 13 stars are inscribed within a circle of dots. Around the circle is a wreath of corn, tobacco, cotton, and wheat. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary. In addition to the estimated 13 to 16 pieces known in copper, a similar number of silver examples are also known. Morgan's Liberty Head, made famous by the silver dollar that is named for the engraver, appeared on pattern issues of all four then-current silver denominations. A total of 20 submissions have been examined at NGC and PCGS, including a few likely resubmissions.

Physical Description. A stunning Premium Gem proof, this miniature Morgan pattern exhibits bold design elements with brilliant orange mint color. The fields are lightly mirrored around lustrous devices, with trivial dark toning flecks attesting to its originality.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 81964)
