    1878 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1573, PR66+ Red and Brown

    1878 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1573, Pollock-1762, Low R.7, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Judd-1573 is one of several different 1878 five dollar patterns, many of which (including Judd-1573) were designed by George T. Morgan. Judd-1566 through Judd-1573a are similar, but Judd-1573 is identified by two characteristics. The required motto IN GOD WE TRUST is absent, and there are periods (or stops) between the peripheral legends on both the obverse and reverse. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Struck in gold and copper, these patterns were all struck on thinner and slightly wider planchets (25.5 mm vs. 21.5 mm). Only a half dozen copper strikes are known and several of these have been gilt. Certified Red and Brown, there is a strong presence of original mint red in the fields on each side with the Brown almost exclusively limited to the devices.
