Description:
Rare and Important 1839 Half Dollar With Gobrecht Designed Reverse, Judd-102 Restrike
1839 P50C Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Judd-102 Restrike, Pollock-113, R.7, PR63 PCGS. The obverse is struck from the regular With Drapery half dollar dies. The reverse is identical to the "Flying Eagle" reverse used to strike 1838 dated pattern half dollars with an eagle flying left, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the upper periphery, HALF DOLLAR on the lower portion. Obviously engraved by Christian Gobrecht and a well executed design. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This is a restrike or "fancy piece" made in the 1870s for sale to collectors. Both dies are rusted, especially the obverse, and the reverse die is heavily broken. About a half dozen pieces are believed to exist. This pattern should be of interest as a peripheral item for the Gobrecht specialist. Brilliant throughout, the fields are nicely mirrored and there is even a slight bit of cameo evident on each side from the light frost on the devices.
