Select Proof Judd-72 1838 Half Dollar1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5, PR63 NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. A large bust of Liberty faces left, with stars and the date at the margins. The reverse features an eagle with spread wings. For many decades, the obverse design was attributed to William Kneass, but Gobrecht was almost certainly the engraver, as the portrait bears close resemblance to the gold eagle also introduced in 1838. Struck in silver with a reeded edge and medal turn. Crisply struck and satiny with sky-blue, caramel-gold, and stone-gray toning. A small strike-through (as made) is noted above the bust tip.
