1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-989, Pollock-1118, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Standard Silver design with Liberty facing right wearing a headband with a star, a scroll below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. The reverse is similar to the one used in 1869 with 50 CENTS in the center and surrounded by a wreath of oak and laurel with 1870 below and STANDARD SILVER above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Each side has a lovely mixture of red and blue, and there are almost no contact marks. The only one we see is slight, an angling, razor-thin mark in the upper left obverse field.
