    Fiery Red 1879 Morgan Half Dollar
    Judd-1600, PR66 Red

    1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1600, Pollock-1795, Low R.7, PR66 Red NGC. The obverse is reminiscent of the standard Morgan dollar, but the border arrangement of stars and E PLURIBUS UNUM differs. The reverse features a large perched eagle with unfurled wings. The eagle clutches three large arrows and an olive branch. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spread around the eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is a sensational piece with fiery orange mint luster throughout. Central weakness is evident on both sides. A few tiny discoloration spots on the obverse will serve the pedigree researcher. Indeed, these small characteristics clearly prove that this is the same piece offered by Bowers and Merena in their Tree Many Feathers Collection of September 2001 (actually sold in November). This Gem specimen is possibly the finest known example of the variety.
    Ex: Tree Many Feathers Collection (Bowers and Merena, 9/2001), lot 141. (NGC ID# 2AGR, PCGS# 81978)
