1879 Morgan Half Dollar in Copper
Judd-1602, PR64 Brown

1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1602, Pollock-1797, R.7, PR64 Brown NGC.
Design.
The obverse is similar to that used on regular issue 1879 Morgan dollars. The reverse depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an olive branch and a bundle of arrows. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the top, the denomination HALF DOLLAR is at the bottom, and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST arches around and below the eagle's portrait. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

Commentary. About a dozen examples of this variety are known and demand is strong from pattern specialists and Morgan dollar collectors. NGC and PCGS have certified nine examples of this pattern variety.

Physical Description. The Choice proof Eric P. Newman specimen has a typical strike with weak central details. The surfaces are pleasing, with mirrored fields and satin devices beneath bluish-brown toning and splashes of orange mint color.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $32; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 61980)
