Five Dollar Coin Pattern, United States, 1878

Description
United States Mint, Philadelphia. Obverse: Head of Liberty facing left, wearing cap. Reverse: Eagle, denomination below. The fact that this pattern was designed by George T. Morgan comes as no surprise: it looks for all the world like a cut-down, but golden, version of his silver dollar design. [reference no. Judd 1577]
