Description:
1878 8 Tailfeathers Morgan, PR66 Cameo
Short-Lived First-Year Subtype
1878 8TF $1 PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1878 8 Tailfeathers Morgan was the initial short-lived design subtype, soon revised to the more enduring 7 Tailfeathers. The proof mintages are anybody's guess, but Bowers estimates 500 examples of the former against 250 of the latter. Collectors today especially prize Cameo examples of this first Morgan proof. This Premium Gem Cameo is one of only 13 in this grade at NGC, with six finer in PR67 Cameo, including one each in Star and Plus designations (3/13). This piece is well-contrasted and fully struck throughout. A touch of golden patina appears on each side, and two tiny contact marks on Liberty's cheek likely preclude an even finer grade.(Registry values: N4719) (PCGS# 87311)
