Description:
Pleasing 1865 With Motto
Silver Half Dollar Pattern
Judd-429, PR64
1865 50C Half Dollar, Judd-429, Pollock-502, Low R.7, PR64 NGC.
Design.
The obverse die is the traditional Liberty Seated design adopted for regular coinage in 1865. The reverse features the familiar perched eagle with scroll and motto above that was adopted for regular issues in 1866. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary.
USPatterns.com acknowledges that some examples of Judd-429 may be legitimate transitional patterns, but concludes that most specimens were struck for sale to collectors at a later date. Experts estimate a population of perhaps one dozen survivors. Don Taxay mentions a notation in the Mason and Company catalog of June 1870 that states that only three pieces were struck. It is possible that the three pieces referred to were true prototypes, while the remaining nine or so pieces represent later restrikes.

Physical Description.
Sharply struck, with crisp detail on the frosty devices. Light gray toning on both sides with only a few contact marks, consistent with the grade. NGC and PCGS have graded a combined total of seven examples at the PR64 level, with only two higher (10/08).

Provenance.
Ex: Stack's private treaty transaction.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (PCGS# 60614)
