Description

Premium Gem Proof 1878 Morgan Dollar
Introductory Eight Tailfeathers Reverse

1878 8TF $1 PR66 PCGS. VAM-14.8. The initial design for the Morgan dollar featured an eagle with eight distinctly visible tailfeathers. A subsequent revision brought the number of tailfeathers down to seven, creating a one-year subtype restricted to Philadelphia coins. This Premium Gem specimen is one of the 500 proofs believed to have been struck with an Eight Tailfeathers reverse. It is boldly mirrored on both sides with a narrow green-gold border around deep blue and violet toning with a peach blush on the obverse. The reverse sports electric-blue border patina which fades through lavender, amethyst, and pink with a pale apricot core left-of-center. Population: 10 in 66, 1 finer (6/11).
From The Paul Taylor Collection of Proof Morgan Dollars.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2572, PCGS# 7311)
