Ron Guth:

Judd-1514 is an extremely popular Pattern because of it's tie-in ot the Morgan Dollar. The obverse features a small head by George Morgan that is remarkably similar to that of the first Morgan Dollars of 1878. The reverse shows a stylized eagle with its wings spread in an unnatural formation. The eagle perches atop a plaque bearing the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST". An olive branch appears on the left side of the plaque and arrows shaped like lightning bolts (reminiscent of a trident) appear on the right side. Judd 1514's were struck in silver (the intended metal) with a reeded edge. Had the design been accepted, this would have been a great replacement for the Seated Liberty design, but it was not to be.

Perhaps as many as a dozen examples of Judd-1514 are known, several of which are in Gem condition. Many are Deep Cameos, so their appearance is impressive. These always bring strong prices at auction, and the record appears to be $48,875 for an NGC PR67 (one of the finest known examples).
