1879 'Morgan Dime' in Copper
1879 10C Ten Cents, Judd-1587, Pollock-1780, High R.6, PR65 Red
and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse will be familiar to
Morgan dollar collectors, George T. Morgan's design for the
circulating contemporary Morgan dollar. The reverse will be
unfamiliar to many, an inner circle of small dots enclosing E
PLURIBUS UNUM and ONE DIME with 13 stars. An outer open wreath with
bow comprises wheat, corn, cotton, and tobacco. Struck in copper
with a reeded edge.
Judd-1587, PR65 Red and Brown
This pattern, surviving to the extent of 12 to 15 specimens in both silver and copper, has been called, fittingly enough, the "Morgan dime" by generations of collectors. The present Gem would make a top-notch complement to a Morgan dollar set. Multicolor patina features yellow and green hues prevailing on the obverse with a gold and reddish reverse. An extremely attractive coin. Population: 3 in 65 Red and Brown, 4 finer (9/20).
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AGD, PCGS# 71964)
