Description:
1877 Morgan Half Dollar, PR63 Red and Brown
Judd-1521, Ex: Farouk
1877 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1521, Pollock-1685, R.7, PR63 Red and Brown PCGS. The obverse features Morgan's head of Liberty facing left, wearing a cap with ears of wheat and cotton bolls. Two groups of stars surround the bust, seven to the left and six to the right. E PLURIBUS UNUM is inscribed above the head and the date is below. The intricate reverse design displays an eagle on a shield, clutching an olive branch and three arrows. The shield is tightly surrounded by a laurel wreath and a band bearing the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. The peripheral inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The obverse design is George Morgan's famous Liberty head concept, adopted for use on the silver dollar in 1878. The model for the obverse is thought to be Anna Williams, of Philadelphia. USPatterns.com believes three or four examples of Judd-1521 are extant today. The present offering is a rare opportunity to secure this desirable issue.
Attractive orange-red patina covers the mirrored fields, while the central devices are accented with tones of blue and crimson. Reportedly cleaned long ago, the surfaces have retoned nicely. A rare and desirable prize for the advanced collector. PCGS has certified two coins total, this piece and one in PR66 Red and Brown. NGC has also graded two pieces total, each of which is graded PR66 Red and Brown (2/10).
