1869 Standard Silver Half Struck in Silver, Judd-7541869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-754, Pollock-838, R.5-6, PR64 PCGS. The obverse features the bust of Liberty wearing a coronet with LIBERTY inscribed in raised letters. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll below. The reverse has 50 CENTS inside a wreath of oak and laurel leaves with STANDARD SILVER above and 1869 below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This fairly common pattern was sold as part of sets with the other designs and denominations for $15. This is a richly toned example that has deep, flashy mirrors in the fields. The basic gray patina that is seen over most of each side turns iridescent when angled just so beneath a light.
