    1878 8 Tailfeathers Dollar, PR67 Cameo
    Briefly Coined One-Year Variant

    1878 8TF $1 PR67 Cameo NGC. The one-year 8 Tailfeathers Morgan dollar proof of 1878 is estimated to have been struck in the quantity of 500 pieces versus 250 for the 7 Tailfeathers coins that followed immediately after, but those are merely educated guesses. Demand is strong from type collectors and series specialists, although the 7 Tailfeathers variant is markedly rarer. Neither type appears in frequency with Cameo surfaces, making this piece a standout in terms of its contrast as well as its preservation. The surfaces are untoned silver-white but show much contrast between fields and devices. A few tiny ticks on Liberty's jaw appear to determine the grade but are far from overt. Census: 6 in 67 (1 in 67 , 1 in 67+) Cameo, 0 finer (2/13).
    From The Greensboro Collection, Part III.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2572, PCGS# 87311)
