    Judd-1601 "Morgan" Pattern Half-Dollar

    1879 Half-Dollar, Judd-1601, Pollock-1796, R.6, PR 65 PCGS. On the obverse, the head of Liberty faces left with the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM above and the date 1879 below. The head is essentially the same as the design that is featured on the Morgan dollar. There are 13 stars, 7 left and 6 right at the border. The reverse exhibits an eagle with spread wings holding an olive sprig in its right talon, 3 arrows in its left. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST arches under the eagle. At the border above is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and below is the denomination HALF DOLLAR. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Brilliant centers are framed with antique-golden and gunmetal-blue shadings at the borders. There are no mentionable hairlines or marks. A gem example of one of the most recognized and popular American patterns. Population: 1 in PR 65, 3 finer (5/96). (PCGS# 61601)
