10 Dollars, United States, 1877

<< >>
Description
United States Mint, Philadelphia. Obverse: Capped Liberty head facing left, date below. Reverse: Eagle, denomination below. This pattern was designed by artist George T. Morgan. Most patterns he designed came to look like his one successful, circulating coin, the silver dollar that bears his name. It has been estimated that between seven and twelve patterns like this one exist in copper. No mention has been found of a gilt copper piece elsewhere. [reference no. Judd 1545]
