Standard Silver design with a bust of Liberty facing right on the obverse.

The reverse exhibits the denomination 50 CENTS within a wreath of oak and laurel. STANDARD SILVER is at the periphery, the date 1869 is below the wreath. The left star is repunched. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The deep navy-blue and mauve patina reveals apricot hues when the pattern is rotated under a light. The letters in LIBERTY and CENTS offer occasional softness of strike, and a few wispy obverse hairlines do not distract. The dies are slightly rotated counterclockwise.
