  • Description:

    This was the redeeming Morgan for the US Mint. After the several mistakes in the minting die that produced coins with aesthetic errors, some of those errors were corrected in 1879. The reverse eagle, in 1878, featured a flat, sunken chest that wasn't copesthetic with what a real eagle looked like. That reverse design was updated with a more pronounced, robust chest in 1879. The US Mint went back over some of the 1878 Morgans to refine the eagle's chest and that is how the 1878 7tf rev 79 Morgan was born. It is on every Morgan collector's list to collect all of the faux pas versions of the Morgans and this interest has increased the numismatic value of these coins. Your 1878 7tf rev 79 contains the reverse design of the 1879 eagle; instead of a flat breast that is pictured on the 1878, the 1878 7tf rev 79 contains a puffed breast.
