    Description

    Widely acknowledged as one of the most spectacular pattern designs, the Schoolgirl is credited to George T. Morgan, a relatively recent arrival to the U.S. Mint. Competition between Morgan and Charles Barber led to several exciting designs in 1879, with the Schoolgirl, Washlady, and Stella patterns among the most notable. According to uspatterns.com, the Schoolgirl moniker originated with New York Coin and Stamp’s April 1891 sale of the F.W. Doughty collection and was likely devised by David Proskey. Silver and copper strikings and a unique obverse lead splasher are known.

    • Contains 2 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: Liberty facing left, with E PLURIBUS at the left rim, seven stars above, UNUM at the right rim, four more stars, the date 1879, and two more stars.
    • Reverse: Defiant Eagle, seemingly about to take flight, facing left on a rectangular perch with IN GOD WE TRUST. An olive sprig is in the left field, with three arrows in the right field. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TWO OUNCES (hallmark and mint mark above) are at the rims, separated by periods, and Hallmark and Mint Mark above.
