    Morgan's 1879 Dime in Copper
    Judd-1589, PR65 Red and Brown

    1879 10C Morgan Ten Cents, Judd-1589, Pollock-1782, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown NGC.
    Design.
    The obverse features the same portrait of Liberty as used on the Morgan dollar, here adapted to the format of a dime. The reverse has ONE DIME in the center and is encircled by a wreath composed of six bunches of four laurel leaves each. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    The various patterns that feature George Morgan's head of Liberty are extremely popular with collectors and connoisseurs of both pattern coins and Morgan silver dollars. The present specimen is only the fourth example that we have offered in our auctions since 1993. Depending on the source, the existing population ranges between 10 and 15 coins. The current Judd reference rates Judd-1589 as Low R.7, with 10 to 12 known, and USPatterns.com suggests that 12 to 15 are known.

    Physical Description.
    A few modest flyspecks on each side, along with slight mellowing of the reverse design elements, prevents a full Red designation to this boldly detailed Gem proof. NGC Census: 1 in PR65 Red and Brown, 3 finer. PCGS Population: 1 in PR65 (Red) Cameo, no others graded PR65, 1 finer (12/08).

    Provenance.
    Ex: Stack's private treaty (12/1981).
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two.
