1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar
Judd-963, PR66 Cameo

1870 P50C Standard Silver Half, Judd-963, Pollock-1059, R.7, PR66 Cameo NGC. CAC.
Design. The central obverse features a capped head of Liberty with two stars, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above, and the motto in a banner below. The reverse shows an open oak and laurel wreath surrounding the denomination, with STANDARD SILVER above, the date below, and two stars separating the date and legends. Struck in silver, with a reeded edge.

Commentary. The Standard Silver series of 1869 and 1870 presents the ultimate challenge to pattern collectors, due to the extensive number of varieties produced during those two years. Multiple obverse and reverse dies were used with pieces struck in various compositions and several denominations. In point of illustration, four different obverse dies were used for the 1870 Standard Silver half dollars alone.

Physical Description. An exceptional Premium Gem Cameo proof, this brilliant silver half dollar has splendid field-to-device contrast with deep mirrors and lustrous motifs. Peripheral gold and iridescent toning add to the eye appeal.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29YV, Variety PCGS# 511495, Base PCGS# 61209)
