She wears a headband inscribed LIBERTY, which is decorated in the center with a star. Her hair is tied up in a bun. IN GOD WE TRUST is beneath within a scroll, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is centered above her. The reverse exhibits a wreath of cotton and corn, with 50 CENTS crowded inside the wreath. STANDARD SILVER is centered above the wreath, and 1870 is beneath the wreath. Struck in silver with a plain edge. (The new Judd book incorrectly denotes this Judd-988 as a copper striking.)
