1879 Morgan Quarter in Silver
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.
