    1878 Copper Gilt Five Dollar Pattern, Judd-1576

    1878 Five Dollars, Judd-1576, Pollock-1769, R.6-7, PR 62 NGC. A head of Liberty faces left with IN GOD WE TRUST above, and the date 1878 below. She is wearing a large cap inscribed LIBERTY and it is ornamented with two wheat ears. There are 13 stars at the border, arranged 7 left and 6 right. An eagle with upraised wings is seen on the reverse. E PLURIBUS UNUM is expressed in two lines over the eagle's head. This design is attributed to William Barber who was impressed with Gobrecht's sketches of the 1830s. Struck in copper gilt with a reeded edge. The surfaces are bright and noticeably hairlined with a delicate rose tint. (PCGS# 61576)
