    1879 Morgan Dime in Copper
    Judd-1589, PR67 Red Cameo

    1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1589, Pollock-1782, Low R.7, PR67 Red Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse exhibits the same portrait as that used on the Morgan dollar, but with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the border. The date 1879 appears below the bust. The reverse features 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.

    This is one of 12 to 15 pieces known. However, there exists an entire subset of Morgan dollar collectors and Morgan pattern specialists who actively seek these pieces out, and that number certainly exceeds the number examples extant. The design is always popular, especially in this diminutive format. Equally impressive is the fabulous technical preservation of this Superb Gem. Both sides are fully copper-orange and feature dramatic field-device contrast. Exceptional in every possible regard.
