    From the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection

    1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1531, Pollock-1699, R.7, PR67+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Bass-Simpson. The obverse shows the head of Liberty facing left wearing a crested helmet with an eagle motif. IN GOD WE TRUST is in small letters above, the date is below, and 13 stars are around the periphery. On the reverse, a spread-winged eagle stands on a tablet inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM. Above the eagle is UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and below HALF DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This gorgeous Superb Gem has excellent field-device contrast with sharp design elements and fully mirrored fields that exhibit considerable red mint color with vibrant blue and violet toning. Just six examples are known with a roster posted at the website; two of the six known examples are in museum collections. A stunning piece for the 1877 pattern half dollar enthusiast.
