Description

Near-Gem Proof 1879 Morgan Half Dollar
Popular and Very Rare Judd-1599 Variety

1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1599, Pollock-1794, High R.6, PR64 PCGS. CAC. The obverse is dominated by a portrait of Liberty nearly identical to that on the Morgan dollar, but appropriately reduced in size for the half dollar denomination. The peripheral inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM and the accompanied stars differ in placement from the Morgan dollar. The reverse features an eagle with partially spread wings, holding an olive branch in the right talon and a trio of arrows in its left claws. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spaced below, along with the denomination and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A softly struck piece but with clear proof surface, this near-Gem specimen has rich silver, gold, lavender, violet, and blue patina. As a Morgan-portrait example in an alternate denomination, this pattern has broader collector appeal than many of its peers, pushing demand beyond what the very rare supply can handle. (PCGS# 61977)
