    1879 Morgan Ten Cent in Silver
    Judd-1588, PR67 Cameo

    1879 10C Morgan Dime, Judd-1588, Pollock-1781, High R.6, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features the same portrait as used on the Morgan dollar, but with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around instead of stars. The date 1879 is below. The reverse displays ONE DIME within a beaded circle with E PLURIBUS UNUM above, stars below, and a wreath composed of six bunches of four laurel leaves each around. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    USPatterns.com lists 12 to 15 pieces known for this Morgan dime in silver, plus a similar quantity manufactured in copper (Judd-1589). The brightly mirrored fields flash strongly through the rich cobalt-blue and rose toning that covers each side. An immaculate pattern, and impressive to find the famous Morgan design on a coin of this size.
    Ex: Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 6/2008), lot 1757.
