Description

1878 7/8 Tailfeathers Morgan Dollar
Strong MS66 Deep Mirror Prooflike
The Only Star-Designated Example

1878 7/8TF $1 Strong MS66 Deep Mirror Prooflike NGC. The Strong 1878 7/8 Tailfeathers has been long recognized as a rarity, one that is seldom seen with PL or DMPL surfaces in Mint State grades finer than MS64. This is a miraculous Premium Gem piece that NGC has justly given its coveted Star designation to, and one that the legions of DMPL Morgan collectors will gravitate toward. There are five feathers (four prominent) visible underneath the seven.
Among the nearly 100 DMPL 1878 7/8 Tailfeathers Morgan dollars undesignated by variety at NGC (including this coin), this piece is the only Star-designated example.
This coin is brilliant throughout. The devices are noticeably frosted and present a profound cameo contrast. The strike is full except for light diagonal roller marks across the eagle's breast. The only noteworthy mark is a slight nick on the nose. An exceptional, high-grade example of this widely collected 1878 variant.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 2TY3, PCGS# 97079)
