    The Garrett Collection Duplicate

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1524, Pollock-1690, Low R.7, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse offers a head of Liberty with six stars to the left, seven to the right, and the date below. Liberty wears a wide-banded cap with the word LIBERTY, hair tied back with a ribbon. The cap is garnished by wheat and cotton. The reverse displays an eagle on a shield inside a band that carries the dual mottoes IN GOD WE TRUST and E PLURIBUS UNUM in Gothic script. Around is the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA with HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A pleasing Choice proof, this example has wispy gold toning on its brilliant silver surfaces. The website provides a census of seven known examples.
