    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1512, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1877 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1512, Pollock-1676, High R.7, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features Morgan's head of Liberty facing left inside a beaded circle. There are 13 stars arranged in two arcs outside the circle, six left and seven right. The inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM is above and the date below. On the reverse, a beaded circle encloses a defiant eagle facing left perched on a thick scroll. The scroll carries the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, with three arrows and an olive branch behind. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is above and the denomination HALF DOLLAR is below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Morgan's memorable Liberty head was used , with slight modifications, on 17 different pattern designs in 1877. Of course, it was also adopted for use on the obverse of the Morgan silver dollar, which began production in 1878. The model for Morgan's design was reportedly a Philadelphia school teacher, Miss Anna W. Williams. Williams was always shy about her role as model, and tried to avoid notoriety as the famous "Silver Dollar Girl." This is a spectacular, high-grade example that displays deeply reflective proof fields with heavily frosted, contrasting devices. Mostly brilliant, there is just a hint of pale golden color around the margins on each side.
