    1879 'Morgan Dime,' Judd-1588, PR67

    1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1588, Pollock-1781, High R.6, PR67 NGC. CAC. An example of the popular "Morgan dime" pattern. The obverse features the portrait of Liberty as used on the Morgan dollar, here adapted to the format of a dime. The 13 stars on the Morgan dollar are here replaced by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, with the date below the bust. Otherwise, the obverse is nearly indistinguishable from the dollar design. The reverse has ONE DIME in the center, 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 Judd reference notes the "unusual style" of the doubled parallel branches or vines that extend all the way around the reverse.
    The "Morgan dimes" are popular not only with pattern and Morgan dollar aficionados, but also with specialists in the various dime series, especially the contemporaneous Seated Liberty design. Fortunately, the Judd-1588, while still quite rare, has a surviving population of perhaps a dozen examples. This is a splendid silver-gold and blue-green toned piece with lots of contrast that appears at a minimum deserving of a Cameo designation, although the moderate-intensity color may have precluded it. Census: 2 in 67 (including one Ultra Cameo), 2 finer (11/09). (NGC ID# 2AGE, PCGS# 61965)
