Description:
1877 Pattern Half Dollar, PR67 Brown
Judd-1525, Pollock-1691
1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1525, Pollock-1691, Low R.7, PR67 Brown NGC. The central figure on the obverse is a bust of Liberty facing left. Liberty wears a cap with a wide band, and the hair is confined by a ribbon. The band of the cap is inscribed LIBERTY and is adorned with wheat and cotton. An array of 13 stars surrounds the bust, and the date is below. The reverse features an eagle, displayed on a shield, clutching an olive branch and three arrows. A circular band is visible behind the shield, with the Gothic inscriptions In God We trust and e pluribus unum. The peripheral inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and HALF DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
Barber's distinctive obverse design was later used on the Goloid pattern dollars of 1878-1880. There are two varieties of Judd-1525, which Andrew Pollock designated as Pollock-1691 and 1693. The present coin is an example of the former designation, characterized by the second 7 in the date being distant from the dentils. USPatterns.com currently traces eight examples of Pollock-1691 (see the website for detailed census information). The coin offered here is a virtually unimprovable specimen.
The surfaces display a beautiful array of mint red, crimson, olive, and light blue toning, making this coin a visual treat. All elements of the intricate design are finely detailed and complement the flawless surfaces to produce fantastic eye appeal. The present coin is the finest certified example in the Brown category at both NGC and PCGS (3/10).
