    1877 Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1516, PR67
    Bust From Morgan Dollar
    Single Finest at PCGS

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1516, Pollock-1680, R.7, PR67 PCGS. Ex: Newman-Simpson. The obverse features George T. Morgan's head of Liberty facing left inside a beaded circle. Thirteen stars are arranged in two arcs outside, six left and seven right. E PLURIBUS UNUM is above and the date below. The central figure on the reverse is an eagle with spread wings inside a beaded circle. The eagle's wing feathers are larger than on other pattern varieties. The eagle is standing on a scroll inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST, with an olive branch and three arrows behind; unusually, the topmost and lowest arrowheads have a zigzag shape. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above and HALF DOLLAR is below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This is a colorful Superb Gem with a pristine appearance and lovely ocean-blue, orange-red, and pumpkin-gold toning. The strike shows minor incompleteness at the centers. USPatterns.com traces only six specimens of Judd-1516.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection, Part I (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 4012.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
