    Description

    1879 Morgan Quarter in Silver
    Judd-1593, PR68 Cameo
    Iridescent Multicolor Toning

    1879 25C Quarter, Judd-1593, Pollock-1787, High R.6, PR68 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Morgan's silver dollar portrait provides the bust on this pattern, reduced in scale for the quarter denomination. The obverse legend is similar, but the layout differs slightly from the Morgan dollar. The reverse has a perched eagle with spread wings, but the wingtips point down, while they are raised on the issued Morgan dollar. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spread and in small letters. This design is often referred to as the "Morgan quarter." Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The well-struck surfaces are bathed in butter-gold, cherry-red, and navy-blue hues. Free from contact, and highly attractive. A few pinpoint freckles are noted on the obverse field.
