    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1506, Pollock-1660, PR67 Cameo

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1506, Pollock-1660, High R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Newman-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.

    According to USPatterns.com, only six examples of this design are known, with four struck from this obverse die and two struck from a similar die but with minor differences, including the absence of George Morgan's initial "M" on the neck (Pollock-1668). This Superb Gem Cameo example from the Bob R. Simpson collection is spectacularly toned in vivid shades of greenish-gray and champagne-gold, with a ring of cerulean-blue at the peripheries of both sides. As almost always seen on this issue, the central reverse shows some incomplete detail, but the obverse devices are well-struck and frosty. The deeply mirrored fields shine through the patina with exceptional eye appeal. This lot represents an unparalleled opportunity for the advanced pattern collector.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection / Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 4011.
