    1878 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1569, PR67 Red Cameo

    1878 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1569, Pollock-1760, R.7, PR67 Red Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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. Differentiated from similar patterns by the letter E below the chin, no obverse periods, and IN GOD WE TRUST on the upper reverse border. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The surfaces retain the bright mint red from 1878 with only a slight intermingling of yellow and lilac. A nearly flawless piece. Patterns with full red color (not to mention cameo contrast) are rarely encountered and worth stretching to acquire.
