Description:
1863 Copper With Motto Half Dollar
Judd-343, PR63 Red and Brown Cameo
1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-343, Pollock-415, R.7, PR63 Cameo Red and Brown NGC. The obverse die is the design used on regular-issue half dollars in 1863. The reverse features the normal perched eagle design, with the addition of the scroll and motto IN GOD WE TRUST above the eagle's head. Struck in copper, with a reeded edge. According to USPatterns.com, Judd-343 was a restrike issue, created for sale to collectors in the 1870s. The coins were typically offered with other denominations as year sets. An early auction appearance of such a set was in the Woodside Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 4/1892), lot 131. The Woodside sale also included complete sets in silver and aluminum. The issue is rare, with an estimated population of about one dozen survivors. Sharply struck, with all features intricately detailed. Lovely, bright orange-red luster shows just a bit of spotty darkening on the reverse. Deeply reflective fields and thickly frosted devices. The only factors limiting the grade are some carbon spots and handling marks (possibly fingerprints) in the obverse fields. An attractive example of a rare and popular pattern.
Ex: DEA and Marshal's Services Sale (Heritage, 12/1988), lot 1881; Lemus Collection / Queller Family Collection Part Two / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1611. (PCGS# 70505)
