    1878 Pattern Morgan Dollar, PR63 Cameo
    Judd-1550A, Raised Designer's Initial

    1878 $1 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1550A, Pollock-1725, Low R.6, PR63 Cameo NGC. Both sides are similar to the adopted design, but differ in several minor areas. The most obvious are the fan-shaped leaves on the lower reverse. On the obverse the wheat ear points to the left of the R in PLURIBUS, the point of the truncation of Liberty's neck is nearer star 1, and the M for Morgan's initial is raised rather than incuse. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Probably only a half dozen of these pieces are known. There were four obverse and either two or three reverse dies that produced four varieties, all struck between December 1, 1877 and January 2, 1878. This is a brilliant example that displays deeply reflective fields with starkly contrasting frosted devices. The surfaces are lightly hairlined but present very well with no noticeable contact marks.
