    Challenging 1878 Five Dollar Pattern
    Judd-1569, PR61 Red and Brown

    1878 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1569, Pollock-1760, R.7, PR61 Red and Brown PCGS. The large Liberty head faces left, and has an expression similar to that of the regular issue Morgan Dollar. However, her hair is tied in a bun, and she does not wear a cap or any cereal grains. The reverse features an eagle with spread wings holding an olive branch in its right talon and three arrows in its left. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. A very rare and prized variety that Heritage has had the honor of handling just a few times before. Dusky violet-brown and brighter copper-orange elements mingle on each side. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 1 in 61 Red and Brown, 4 finer (8/09).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AFP, PCGS# 71932)

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
