Description:
Exceptional 1865 With Motto Half Dollar
Judd-430, PR67 Brown Cameo
Finest Judd-430 Certified
1865 50C Half Dollar, Judd-430, Pollock-503, High R.6, PR67 Brown Cameo NGC. Regular die trials issue. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is the so-called "transitional" half dollar that uses the reverse of 1866-1891. These and the other With Motto patterns of this date and also 1863 and 1864 are actually restrikes made circa 1869 and into the early 1870s, and were offered along with restrikes of other denominations in complete sets. According to Saul Teichman and the USPatterns.com website, the first definite sales occurrence for an 1865 With Motto set was in the October 1870 Mason & Company sale of the Fewsmith Collection. A possible earlier listing may be Cogan's September 1869 sale. This is an absolutely stunning example of this die trial. The fields are deeply mirrored on each side and rich turquoise toning covers both obverse and reverse with a brownish-purple coloration apparent in the fields at certain angles. Defect-free to the unaided eye, a magnifier reveals a few randomly placed die polishing marks in the fields, as one might expect from a proof striking. This is the finest Judd-430 certified not only as a Brown Cameo, but in any color on a copper variant of this pattern. (PCGS# 60615)
