    1879 Morgan Dime, PR63 Cameo
    Judd-1588, 12-15 Pieces Believed Known

    1879 10C Morgan Dime, Judd-1588, Pollock-1781, High R.6, PR63 Cameo PCGS. The obverse features the same portrait of Liberty as used on the Morgan dollar, here adapted to the format of a dime. The reverse has ONE DIME in the center and is encircled by a wreath composed of six bunches of four laurel leaves each. The second U in PLURIBUS is repunched. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The Morgan dime was struck in copper and silver with an estimated 12-15 pieces surviving in each metal. Much central brilliance is seen on each side with blue and golden margins. The fields are remarkably reflective with obvious cameo contrast created by the frosted devices.
    From The J.P. Tatum Collection. (Variety PCGS# 134089, Base PCGS# 61965)
