    1878 Morgan Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1550b, PR65 Red and Brown
    Ex: Fairfield

    1878 $1 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1550b, Pollock-1726, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS.
    The design on both sides is similar to the adopted Morgan dollar, but on the obverse the point of the bust truncation is nearer to star 1 than to the 1 in the date. The wheat ear in Liberty's cap points to the left side of the R in PLURIBUS and the M for Morgan's initial is raised. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Of the four varieties known, this is the most frequently encountered. Pieces were struck in both copper and silver, and approximately a half dozen are known in each metal. Each side is just slightly mellowed from full red.
    Ex: Fairfield Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/1977), lot 67, flip accompanies.
