    Important Defiant Eagle Reverse

    (1877) 50C Defiant Eagle Reverse PR55 Uncertified. This interesting piece has toned brown, and is set within a copper square with cut corners. The reverse features low relief concentric circles, similar to Humbert's slugs for the U.S. Assay Office. Traces of sticky verdigris are noted on the otherwise smooth obverse. The George T. Morgan design was used for the center of the reverse of one of the Morgan half dollar pattern designs, Judd-1512. In larger format, it was used on the 1879 Schoolgirl dollar (Judd-1608), and in smaller format, it was adapted on the 1915-S Panama-Pacific quarter eagle.
