    1878 Ten Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1580, PR66+ Red and Brown
    Charles Barber's Capped Liberty

    1878 $10 Ten Dollar, Judd-1580, Pollock-1773, Low R.7, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A cap inscribed LIBERTY adorns the flowing locks on the obverse with IN GOD WE TRUST above and 1878 below. Stars are arranged with seven to the left and six more to the right. A small eagle has wings that are stretched far above, holding three arrows and an olive branch. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and denomination TEN DOLLARS follow the border above and below. The upper reverse field has the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. About a dozen examples of Judd-1580 are known, a few of which are gilt. Neither NGC nor PCGS has certified any examples as Red. This high-grade example displays substantial orange-gold, although lilac and lavender shades are also prominent. Boldly struck and unabraded with only inconsequential carbon.
