Choice Proof 1838 Half Dollar, Judd-721838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5, PR64 PCGS. 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 his 1838 to 1840 issued gold designs. Struck in silver with a reeded edge and medal turn. Plum-red, electric-blue, and sea-green toning endow this nicely struck near-Gem. The left obverse has a few thin toning streaks, but marks are nearly absent. Housed in an old green label holder. Population: 6 in 64, 3 finer (6/07). (PCGS# 11282)
