    Extremely Rare 1878 Judd-1582 Ten Dollar Pattern, Unique in Private Hands

    1878 $10 Morgan's Liberty Head Eagle, Judd-1582, Pollock-1775, R.8, PR62 Red and Brown PCGS. Liberty wears a large soft cap with a band inscribed LIBERTY, similar to the Morgan silver dollar design. E PLURIBUS UNUM is divided between the left and right obverse fields with the date below. The reverse has an eagle with outstretched wings, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and TEN DOLLARS below. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST appears in the upper reverse field. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Reflective surfaces have light reddish-tan color with traces of iridescent toning and splashes of brighter orange mint luster on each side. Minor spots and hairlines keep this piece from a higher grade.
    This is an extremely rare pattern variety with a total known population of just three coins, and two of those are held by the Smithsonian Institution! This piece is the only example of Judd-1582 known to exist outside of a museum.
    Ex: Bowers and Merena (3/2000); Heritage (5/2001).
    From The Jones Beach Collection.
