Desirable 1879 Morgan Ten Cent Pattern
Judd-1588, PR66

1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1588, Pollock-1781, High R.6, PR66 PCGS.
Design.
Morgan's Liberty Head serves the obverse with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date below. The reverse has a laurel wreath around a circle of dots that contains the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM, 13 stars, and ONE DIME. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
In addition to his Liberty Head design made famous by the Morgan silver dollar, the artist also created the distinctive Schoolgirl design. The year 1879 was one of great competition between Morgan and both Barbers, William and Charles. All three artists created pattern designs before the death of the elder Barber, William, on August 31, 1879.
