    1879 Judd-1599 Morgan Half Dollar, VF Details

    1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1599, Pollock-1794, High R.6--Mount Removed, Scratched--NCS. VF Details. The obverse is dominated by a portrait of Liberty nearly identical to that on the Morgan dollar, but appropriately reduced in size for the half dollar denomination. The peripheral inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM and the accompanied stars differ in placement from the Morgan dollar. The reverse features an eagle with partially spread wings, holding an olive branch in the right talon and a trio of arrows in its left claws. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spaced below, along with the denomination and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. As described on the NCS holder, the coin is scratched and the rims are bruised, with some other surface roughness.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2AGP, PCGS# 61977)
