Magnificent 1871 Judd-1114 Half Dollar, PR67 Cameo
Perhaps the Finest of Six Known
1871 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1114, Pollock-1250, High R.7, PR67 Cameo NGC.
A seated Liberty faces left, wearing an Indian princess headdress and a flowing robe. Her left hand rests atop a globe wrapped with a scroll bearing the word LIBERTY in raised letters, while holding a spear and Liberty cap in her right hand. Two flags--one bearing 13 stars--are in the background, with the date 1871 in exergue. Thirteen stars fill the periphery. A regular half dollar reverse die was used to produce Judd-1109. An eagle with a shield on its breast and wings spread holds arrows and olive branches in its talons. The upper field features a flowing scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST in raised letters. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA fills the upper periphery with HALF DOL. below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Andrew Pollock's 1994 pattern reference offers an inaccurate census, so we cautiously provide a modified provenance for the current offering. Coincidentally, the piece in this sale is the Pollock plate coin and was featured on the cover of the October 1988 Stack's sale. Pollock suggests this pattern was once the property of King Farouk and was subsequently sold as part of the Stanford Collection via Steve Ivy in July 1977. Unfortunately, the Judd-1114 in that sale was unplated, so positive identification is impossible. Pollock also counts seven examples, but fewer are believed extant, lending credence to the fact that his itemization is erroneously expansive.

Physical Description.
As one would expect of a Superb Gem proof, this specimen is stunning in presentation. The strike is intense and time has graciously spared the surfaces of this beauty from any apparent mishandling. All of the aforementioned positive attributes are sealed by an awe-inspiring display of delicate toning throughout, and breathtaking cameo contrast adds to the charm of this magnificent Judd-1114 survivor. NGC Census: This is the finest of the two NGC-certified pieces by four grade points, and the Cameo and Star designations only serve to further illustrate this piece's superiority. PCGS Population: Four pieces total, the finest of which was graded PR64 (12/08).
