    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1515, PR67+ Brown

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1515, Pollock-1679, High R.7, PR67+ Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to the Morgan dollar, but the head of Liberty is surrounded by a beaded circle, with 13 stars and E PLURIBUS UNUM around the edge. The date 1877 is below. On the reverse a so-called "defiant eagle" is perched on a scroll inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. An olive branch points left, and three arrowheads point right. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Only seven Judd-1515 representatives are known, and this Superb Gem is considered the finest among them. Golden-brown and olive surfaces showcase accents of magenta and light blue-green patina. Eye appeal is outstanding.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
