    1877 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1517, Pollock-1681, R.6-7, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse shows Liberty (virtually identical to the Morgan dollar), facing left surrounded by a beaded circle. E PLURIBUS UNUM is above, the date 1877 is below, the reverse shows a defiant eagle facing right with upraised wings in the center. A beaded ring encircles the eagle, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the top and sides, HALF DOLLAR completes the circle below. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is the first of four dies executed by George Morgan in 1877 and greatly resembles the obverse of the Morgan dollar. This is a splendid proof with bright mirrors in the fields that serve to enhance the rich purple and cobalt-blue toning on each side.
