The Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection 
Famous and Elegant 1879 "Schoolgirl" Dollar
Morgan's "Petition Dollar"

The “Petition Crown” did not escape links to American Numismatics.

Lot. 1289 1879 pattern dollar. P-1805, J-1609. Rarity-7.
Schoolgirl motif. Proof-64
RB (PCGS). Copper. Reeded edge. Perhaps this was
Morgan's "petition dollar"- a la
Thomas Simon's famous "petition crown" of Charles II
whereby Morgan demonstrated  his talent in the hopes of securing
the chief engravership.

It was at once a rarity and a prime example of numismatic art.
