Description

1838 Half Dollar Restrike, PR66
Judd-73, 192 Grains

1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR66 NGC. CAC.
Design.
The central figure of the obverse die is a bust of Liberty facing left, wearing a diadem, with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. Thirteen stars at the periphery are arranged seven left and six right, with 1838 below. The reverse features an eagle flying left, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and the denomination HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in silver with a medal turn and a reeded edge.

Commentary. Originals and restrikes are known. The 192 grain weight, medal turn die alignment, and prominent reverse die cracks all point to the Restrike status of this half dollar pattern. George Eckfeldt's journals of operations within the Mint point to the period from 1849 to 1852 as the time that these pattern half dollars were restruck.

Physical Description. This Premium Gem has moderately mirrored fields and lightly lustrous, boldly detailed devices, all visible through gorgeous gold toning with light blue peripheries.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 296N, PCGS# 11288)
