    Pristine, Full Red 1879 Schoolgirl Dollar in Copper, Judd-1609

    1879 $1 Schoolgirl Dollar, Judd-1609, Pollock-1805, R.7, PR68 Red NGC. The popular "Schoolgirl" design by George T. Morgan. A bust of Liberty faces left with the inscription E PLURIBUS*******UNUM****around and the date, 1879 below. Her hair is combed straight and tied with a ribbon, a headband crossing the top of her head is inscribed LIBERTY. The reverse depicts a defiant eagle facing left standing on a scroll inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is an absolutely spectacular Schoolgirl Dollar. Without a doubt, the finest known. It is the finest certified by either of the major grading services in any color: Red, Red and Brown, or Brown. The surfaces are pristine and the color is bright pinkish-red and orange--the coin looks like it was just struck. Completely original and fully struck. This piece will undoubtedly pass into strong hands as advanced pattern collectors will have to bid generously to capture this Superb Gem.
    From the Genaitis Collection of 1879 Coinage. (NGC ID# 2AGZ, PCGS# 81987)
