    1879 Morgan Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1612, PR63 Brown

    1879 $1 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1612, Pollock-1808, Low R.7, PR63 Brown NGC. This issue features the adopted Morgan dollar obverse, but offers an alternative reverse with a large perched eagle holding an olive branch (with seven leaves) and three arrows. Around the reverse border are the legends: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA / ONE DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Apparently some observers had called the eagle on the adopted reverse "scrawny." Most of each side is deep brown with an interesting accent of green patina over the eagle on the reverse.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AH3, PCGS# 61990)
