    PR67 Judd-1586 1879 Morgan Dime
    The Single Finest Certified

    1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1586, Pollock-1779, High R.6, PR67 PCGS. A "Morgan dime" pattern that borrows the obverse motif from the issued Morgan dollar, albeit in reduced format. E PLURIBUS UNUM and the 13 stars are moved from the obverse to the reverse, where they reside within an inner beaded circle that surrounds the denomination ONE DIME. The reverse border exhibits an agricultural wreath. The obverse periphery displays UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the date. The D in DIME has hair-thin lines between the two uprights, perhaps corrected by the engraver by hand on the working die. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
    This flashy and meticulously struck Superb Gem is toned ocean-blue and plum-red. Minor and slender breaks in the reverse patina are noted near 8 o'clock. The present lot is the single finest certified example of Judd-1586, with an NGC PR64 three grades behind as its closes competitor (11/07).
    From The Pelican Bay Collection of Pattern Coins.
