    1877 Morgan Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-1514, PR66 Deep Cameo
    Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr.

    1877 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1514, Pollock-1678, Low R.7, PR66 Deep Cameo 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. On the reverse, a so-called "defiant eagle" is perched on a scroll inscribed IN GOD WE TRUST. An olive branch points left, and three arrowheads point right. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The Morgan half dollar patterns of 1877 represent a perennially popular subset within the pattern series. This design was struck in silver (Judd-1514) and copper (Judd-1515).

    This PR66 Deep Cameo representative from the Bob R. Simpson Collection, formerly the Harry Bass coin, is one of seven Judd-1514 pieces traced by Saul Teichman of Both sides are mostly brilliant, and field-device contrast is eye-catching. There are just a few blushes of color at the upper obverse and lower reverse. A dazzling example of this Morgan half dollar rarity.
