    1878 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1573A, PR66+ Brown
    The Finest of Two Publicly Available

    1878 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1573A, Pollock-1762, Low R.7, PR66+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Judd-1573a 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-1573a is identified by two characteristics. The required motto IN GOD WE TRUST is absent, and there are no periods between the peripheral legends on both the obverse and reverse. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only four examples are known, two of which are in the Smithsonian. The other publicly available piece grades PR64 Brown and is in a mislabeled holder. Each side is covered in rich turquoise toning with accents of cherry-red around the outer devices and within the recesses of the design. A rare opportunity for the pattern specialist.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
