    Judd-1588, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1588, Pollock-1781, High R.6, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. An example of the popular "Morgan dime" pattern. The obverse features the portrait of Liberty as used on the Morgan dollar, surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, with the date below the bust. The reverse has ONE DIME in the center, encircled by a wreath composed of six bunches of four laurel leaves on each branch. The second U in PLURIBUS is repunched. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The fields are deeply reflective and establish a "black" background for the thickly frosted devices. Almost brilliant, there is just a hint of pale golden color on each side.
