    Highly Collectible 1877 Morgan
    Half Dollar Pattern in Copper

    Judd-1513, PR65 Brown

    1877 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1513, Pollock-1677, Low R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. The obverse features the George T. Morgan Liberty Head, somewhat as on the Morgan dollar, but inside a beaded circle, with E PLURIBUS UNUM above and the date 1877 below. The reverse features Morgan's "defiant eagle," perched on a scroll inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. Three arrowheads shoot up from the rear right of the scroll, and an olive branch from the left. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and HALF DOLLAR are inside a beaded circle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Saul Teichman has traced as few as nine and believes there may be as many as 11 examples of this pattern. The mint luster has evenly mellowed over each side and is now a nearly uniform chocolate-brown overall. The only surface flaws we see are a couple of tiny carbon spots below the eagle's head.
