Description:
PR66 Red 1879 Morgan Half, Judd-1600
1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1600, Pollock-1795, Low R.7, PR66 Red NGC. The obverse is reminiscent of the standard Morgan dollar, but the border arrangement of stars and E PLURIBUS UNUM differs. The reverse features a large perched eagle with unfurled wings. The eagle clutches three large arrows and an olive branch. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spread around the eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
This beautiful pattern is orange-red with occasional dashes of sky-blue and olive-gold. Both sides are remarkably smooth, and the strike is crisp overall despite slight softness in the centers. NGC and PCGS combined have certified only seven examples, and the present piece is tied with one other for the honor of finest certified (5/07).
Ex: Bowers and Merena, 8/98, lot 2096.
From The Vanek Collection. (PCGS# 81978)
