    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1523, PR67+ Brown

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1523, Pollock-1687, 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. The reverse features an eagle over a seven-pointed shield, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST to the left, above, and right of the shield. The entire design is enclosed within a wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.

    Three or four examples of Judd-1523 are known. Two additional pieces exist in silver (Judd-1522). Faded mint red color appears around the peripheral devices. Flashy copper-brown surfaces are primarily toned in rich cobalt-blue patina with magenta accents.
