    1879 Morgan Dime in Copper
    Judd-1587, PR66+ Red
    Ex: Newman, CAC Approved

    1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1587, Pollock-1780, High R.6, PR66+ Red PCGS. CAC. Ex: Newman-Simpson. The obverse depicts a head of Liberty facing left with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the date, 1879, below. The head is essentially a miniature of that featured on the regular issue Morgan dollar. On the reverse, the denomination ONE DIME, the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM, and an arc of 13 stars are inscribed within a circle of dots. Around the circle is a wreath of corn, tobacco, cotton, and wheat. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    About 12 to 15 pieces are known in copper, plus a similar number in silver. Morgan's Liberty Head, made famous by the silver dollar named for its engraver, appeared on pattern issues of all four then-current silver denominations. This striking Premium Gem proof dime exhibits bold design elements with brilliant orange mint color. The fields are lightly mirrored around lustrous devices, with trivial dark toning flecks attesting to its originality.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 4017.
