    1878 Morgan Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1551, Pollock-1728, PR66+ Brown

    1878 P$1 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1551, Pollock-1728, High R.6, PR66+ Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A Morgan dollar pattern that resembles the issued design, distinguished from Judd-1550b by the base of the eagle's wings, which are notched on Judd-1551. There are three leaves on the olive branch, instead of nine as on Judd-1153. In his patterns reference, Pollock lists three subvarieties. Pollock-1728, R.7, has the bust tip centered between a star and the 1 in the date, and the R in PLURIBUS is separated from the wheat ear. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This Plus-graded Premium Gem displays coppery surfaces overall with iridescent accents of powder-blue, sea-green, peach-orange, and magenta. Flashy and fully struck without apparent contact.
