    Important 1879 Morgan Half Dollar
    Judd-1601, Lushly Toned

    1879 50C Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1601, Pollock-1796, High R.6, PR67 PCGS. Morgan's bust for the 1878 silver dollar appears on the obverse, suitably reduced in scale for the half dollar denomination. E PLURIBUS UNUM and the stars have a layout similar to the Morgan dollar obverse. The reverse features a perched eagle sans wreath. The eagle clutches an olive branch with seven leaves, and three arrows with large arrowheads. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spread and in tiny letters. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.
    This beautiful Superb Gem is richly patinated in golden-rose and ocean-blue shades. The flashy fields are unabraded, and the strike is precise throughout. An unimprovable example of this desirable Morgan dollar-related pattern.
