Description

Colorfully Toned Gem Proof 1878 8 Tailfeather Dollar

1878 8TF $1 PR66 PCGS. VAM-14.3. Deeply and colorfully toned atop glassy proof mirrors of substantial quality and eye appeal. The 1878 8TF is the introductory issue of the Morgan Dollar series and proofs are even more challenging than their modest mintage of just 500 coins would suggest. Miller wrote that most 8TF proofs were "toned, some very deeply, and some with an attractive play of varying colors...." This high grade piece certainly fits that description. Overlaying both sides are a splendid array of magenta, sunset-gold, red, and cobalt-blue iridescence. A few higher grade pieces are known, but we doubt if any could surpass the eye appeal of this multicolored Gem. Population: 9 in 66, 1 finer (11/05).
From The JFS Collection, Part Three.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2572, PCGS# 7311)
