| From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1937: Copper Piece (Kellogg, 1936). H.M., A.I.S. 1936. Of brilliant glowing copper-red, this Iris has tremendous carrying power. Much the shape of Dauntless the cupped S. are more red, deepening at the tips; the F. are straight hanging, but not drooping, and have a color suffusion lacking in the older Iris. The center of the fall has a definite tone of violet blended with the red, that extends upward, ending at the beard with a point of almost pure violet. To this, add a distinct epaulette of well-polished copper on each shoulder of the F., that makes a striking contrast with the violet center and copper red margins. 34 inches. $15.00.
| Copper Piece. A brilliant copper penny on the falls gives its name true significance. Vigorous and splendidly branched. S. open, F. straight hanging. A mass would be stunning. [Mrs. Herman E. Lewis, "Varietal Notes 1938", A.I.S. Bulletin 72 (January 1939): 11.]
| Copper Piece showed a very brilliant and interesting color. The blooms are not large, but the color is most unusual and attractive, a coppery red with a definite violet suffusion. [Charles and Agnes Whiting, "1937 Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 66 (September 1937): 9.]
