Description

R.8 Judd-970 1870 Standard Silver
Half Dollar, PR63 Cameo
One of Only Two Certified

1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-970, Pollock-1081, R.8, PR63 Cameo NGC. Judd's "Obverse 2 of 1869" with LIBERTY in raised letters and no designer's initial. The reverse is Standard Silver with the word CENTS gently curving and two ornamental stars flanking the date of 1870. Struck in silver with a plain edge. One of just two examples certified by NGC (the other a PR64) for this exceedingly rare issue, one which the most recent edition of Judd (2009) has selling last at auction all the way back in 1984. The present piece is flashy and distinctly contrasted through light toning that has golden accents against pale silver-gray. Well-defined and entirely appealing despite a handful of scattered hairlines. (NGC ID# 29YX, PCGS# 61216)

If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
