    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1504, Pollock-1658, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1504, Pollock-1658, High R.7, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features Morgan's head of Liberty facing left, wearing a cap with ears of wheat and cotton bolls. Two groups of stars surround the bust, seven to the left and six to the right. E PLURIBUS UNUM is inscribed above the head and the date is below. The reverse has an eagle displayed on a shield with three arrows in its left claw and an olive branch in its right claw. A round band frames and passes beneath a shield, lettered IN GOD WE TRUST. Around the shield and band is a laurel wreath, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA along the outer border, and HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    There are two obverse dies associated with this Judd number. Pollock differentiates his 1658 from 1666 by the proximity of the upper feathers to the letters R and I in PLURIBUS. Pollock-1658 shows the feather not quite touching the R, and the bust tip is slightly curved. According to, there are only four examples known for this variety and two for Pollock-1666 for a total of six confirmed Judd-1504 representatives. This brilliant Superb Gem enjoys Deep Cameo contrast with thickly frosted central motifs and glassy fields. A blush of thin toning occurs above E PLU and the corresponding area on the other side.
