    Deeply Reflective, Richly Toned 1879
    'Morgan Quarter,' Judd-1593, PR67 ★

    1879 25C Morgan Quarter Dollar, Judd-1593, Pollock-1787, Low R.7, PR67 ★ NGC. Easily called a "Morgan quarter," the obverse shows the familiar George Morgan Liberty Head design with peripheral inscriptions arranged differently from the silver dollar: two stars, E PLURIBUS, seven stars, UNUM, four stars (total 13), and the date 1879 below. On the reverse a spread-winged eagle holds an olive sprig in its right talon, three arrows in its left. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the upper rim, with QUARTER DOLLAR at the lower rim. IN GOD WE TRUST is awkwardly squeezed in on three sides of the eagle. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
    This is a splendid example of this popular design that is known in four denominations and in copper and silver variants. The fields are deeply reflective, which is immediately apparent even through the significant toning over each side. Most of each side is covered in rich turquoise patina, with pale yellow and rose color around the margins. The Star designation is certainly deserved on this upper-end coin.
    From The Van Treuren Collection.
