    1879 'Morgan Quarter' in Silver
    Judd-1593, Colorful PR68

    1879 25C Morgan Quarter, Judd-1593, Pollock-1787, High R.6, PR68 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A "Morgan quarter" with George Morgan's famous 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 gorgeously toned specimen, one of 12 to 15 Judd-1593 patterns known, and the plate coin for PCGS CoinFacts. Peach and lemon-yellow borders frame the ocean-blue and apricot interiors of this Superb Gem. The strike is expectedly full, and the preservation is exquisite. This impressive lot will be of considerable interest to Morgan dollar collectors as well as the pattern specialist.
