    Attractive and Popular 1879 Morgan Half Dollar
    Judd-1599, PR63

    1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1599, Pollock-1794, High R.6, PR63 NGC. Morgan's Liberty Head provides the central obverse motif with the date below the bust. E PLURIBUS follows the left border with one star at the lower left and two stars at the upper left. UNUM is found at the right border with six stars at the upper right and four stars at the lower right. The reverse has an eagle holding an olive branch and three arrows. The statutory legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA follows the upper border with HALF DOLLAR at the lower border. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is divided between the three lower quadrants. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Both sides have bright silver surfaces with attractive light gold color that deepens slightly near the border. Light cameo contrast is the result of frosty luster on the devices and deeply mirrored fields. A few tiny scrapes and faint hairlines limit the grade. The centers are weakly defined, apparently as always. This is a rare pattern with only 12 to 15 examples known.
    Ex: 2002 ANA Sale (Superior, 8/2002), lot 1799. (NGC ID# 2AGP, PCGS# 61977)
