    1879 Morgan Dollar Pattern in Silver
    Judd-1615, PR68 Cameo

    1879 $1 Morgan Dollar, Judd-1615, Pollock-1811, High R.6, PR68 Cameo NGC. The obverse depicts the regular dies design for the Morgan dollar, while the reverse features an eagle with spread wings holding an olive branch in its right talon and three long arrows in his left. Above is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. ONE DOLLAR is below. E PLURIBUS UNUM appears on both sides. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    According to USPatterns.com, this was "another attempt to replace the production design whose eagle was described as scrawny among other things." This spectacular pattern is toned in an array of traditional gold, violet, green, and blue hues. The reverse is particularly appealing, with NGC displaying this piece with the reverse forward in the holder. The rich patina fails to dampen the contrast between the flashy fields and razor-sharp device.
    From The Siegel Collection. (NGC ID# 2AH6, Variety PCGS# 134101, Base PCGS# 61993)
