Description:
1879 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1612, PR65 Red
1879 $1 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1612, Pollock-1808, Low R.7, PR65 Red NGC.
Design.
The obverse is that of the regular-issue Morgan dollar, while the reverse shows a statuesque eagle perched, head facing left, with downward-pointed wings, clutching an olive branch and three arrows. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and ONE DOLLAR encircle the border. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
The USPatterns.com website notes, "This design by Morgan is another attempt to replace the production design whose eagle was described as scrawny among other things." The pieces in silver and copper are both equally (exceedingly) rare, with more than a dozen examples (only) known, according to the website. Pollock reports that all specimens known have a 180-degree die alignment. The combined NGC/PCGS certified population stands at 10 pieces in all color designations (Red, Red and Brown, Brown), although only seven are certified Red (9/08).

Physical Description.
The pristine surfaces of this Gem specimen are a splendid orange-gold. Were it not for a few trivial carbon flecks and minor contact on Liberty's cheek, this piece might achieve an even finer grade. A small oblong dark toning spot just above Liberty's headband, between the UR of URIBUS, serves as a pedigree marker. NGC Census: 1 in PR65 Red, 1 finer. PCGS Population: 2 in PR65 Red, 1 finer (12/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Greater New York Numismatic Convention Sale (Stack's, 4/1988), lot 1418.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
