Impressive Gem Proof 1869 Pattern Half Dollar, Judd-749

1869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-749, Pollock-832, High R.6, PR65 NGC. Standard Silver half with Liberty facing right on the obverse, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above, and the motto below. The reverse shows 50 CENTS in the center, surrounded by a wreath of oak and laurel with STANDARD SILVER above and the date below. Struck in silver with a plain edge. This is a richly toned example that shows essentially unmarred surfaces. Smoky-lilac and sea-blue colors surround the obverse periphery, the reverse is completely toned with a mixture of cobalt-blue and purple shadings. The fields are exceptionally deep in their mirrored reflectivity and the devices are noticeably frosted giving this impressive coin a pronounced contrasting appearance. Fewer than a dozen pieces are believed known of this pattern striking, and this undoubtedly is the most visually impressive of those extant. (PCGS# 60978)
