Circulated Choice Extra Fine Nice and Original. This coin is uncertified and y. Ou will receive the pictured coin. Although the 1875-CC through 1877-CC issues have seven-figure mintages, the 1876-CC is hard to locate with nice original surfaces.
The present Extra Fine example displays autumn-brown toning in protected regions. All letters in LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST are strong. There is no consequential contact. In response to the religious fervor that inspired the nation during the Civil War, the Mint began adding the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST to all its coinages. It began in 1864 with the 2-cent piece and was added to the half dollar in 1866.It remained on the concurrent half dollar designs in some form up to the present time. The motto addition was achieved by changing Gobrecht's reverse design with a ribbon above the heraldic eagle depicting the inscription. The added device was included on all varieties of the half for the duration of its production. The Motto half is the more common type version of the Seated design. Add this Coin to your cart today!
