    1879 Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1614, PR67 Red and Brown
    Finest Example Known

    1879 $1 Silver Dollar, Judd-1614, Pollock-1810, Low R.7, PR67 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse die is the regular issue Morgan dollar, but the reverse shows an eagle with sandwich board wings, similar to the Washington quarter. IN GOD WE TRUST is stretched out over the upper half of the periphery, and accompanies the remaining two statutory legends, which have the usual placements. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This design was struck in both copper and silver, each metal has more than a dozen survivors known. This is the finest known example among the copper strikes. The surfaces retain generous portions of original mint red, especially the reverse. The obverse displays a deepening of color, mostly blue, toward the center. Each side appears flawless.
