    1878 Five Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1578, PR66 Brown

    1878 $5 Five Dollar, Judd-1578, Pollock-1771, Low R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS. CAC. The so-called Phrygian Head or Liberty Head obverse, attributed to George T. Morgan. Liberty wears a Phrygian cap, facing left, with LIBERTY incused on the band. E PLURIBUS is to the left, UNUM to the right, with date 1878 below. On the reverse an eagle is somewhat similar to the Morgan dollar reverse "except not as delicate" (Judd). IN GOD WE TRUST is in Gothic script over the eagle, with FIVE DOL. at the rim below. Struck on a regular-diameter planchet, in copper with a reeded edge. About a dozen examples are known. This is a beautiful piece that still retains much of the original red on the reverse. The obverse is subtly toned in light blue and rose, the colors enhanced by the deep mirroring seen in the fields.
