    1879 Morgan Dime in Copper
    Judd-1587, PR66 Red and Brown

    1879 10C Ten Cents, Judd-1587, Pollock-1780, High R.6, PR66 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. Only 12-15 copper examples are known of this "Morgan dime." This piece retains significant portions of original mint red with the "Brown" represented by deep blue on the device of Liberty and around the margin on the reverse.
