    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1506, Pollock-1660, PR66 Cameo

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1506, Pollock-1660, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Essentially a miniature of Morgan's famous dollar design, dated 1877. The reverse has an eagle over a seven-pointed shield, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST to the left, above, and right of the shield. This entire design is enclosed within a wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    The obverse of Pollock-1660 is similar to that of Pollock-1668. Minor differences include the wheat ears around (PLU)RIB(US), the longer and slightly curved bust tip, and the presence of George Morgan's "M" initial above the lowest curl. According to USPatterns.com, six examples of Judd-1506 are known: four from this obverse die and two from the other. The present Premium Gem features brilliant Cameo-contrasted interiors framed by elegant golden patina around the borders. Softly struck at the centers, but a remarkable Morgan half dollar rarity nonetheless.
