Description

Beautiful 1838 Judd-72 Half Dollar, PR65

1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5, PR65 NGC. Ex: Simpson. 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. Light cameo contrast is evident on this Gem proof, with light silver at the centers, and peripheral iridescence on the obverse. Census: 5 in 65, 1 finer (7/10).
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 3YLW, PCGS# 11282)
