    1879 Morgan Quarter in Copper
    Judd-1594, PR65 Red Cameo

    1879 25C Morgan Quarter Dollar, Judd-1594, Pollock-1788, High R.6, PR65 Red Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The head of Liberty that faces left on the obverse is a miniature version of that used on the regular issue Morgan silver dollar. * * E PLURIBUS * * * * * * * UNUM * * * * is around the border, and the date 1879 is below. The reverse depicts a spread wing eagle with an olive branch in its left (facing) talon and a bundle of arrows in its right (facing). Above is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and below is the motto IN GOD WE TRUST and the denomination QUARTER DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only about 12 to 15 examples of this pattern are known in copper, with a similar number of pieces in silver (Judd-1593). The bright copper-red surfaces are deeply mirrored in the fields and satiny across the devices. Wisps of lilac with a few flecks attest to the originality of the patina.
