Extremely Rare 1877 Half Dollar Pattern, Judd-1540

1877 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1540, Pollock-1711, R.7, PR65 NGC. The obverse features a Paquet-designed portrait of Liberty facing left, thirteen stars around, and the date below. The reverse displays a sandwich board eagle with a scroll in its beak, and the remaining statutory requirements at the margins. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A pronounced die crack extends into the stars on each side of the date on the obverse, a rather curious occurrence on a pattern which saw such limited production. Only five pieces are known from these dies, although Harry W. Bass, Jr. once owned an apparently unique example with a slightly different date placement. A needle-sharp Gem with lovely apricot-gold color that is seemingly pristine aside from a solitary slide mark on the cheek. A small mint-made planchet flaw near the third star aids pedigree research. uspatterns.com lists the pedigree for the present example as Gaston DiBello Collection (Stack's, 5/1970), lot 396; Johnson (Hughes, 1/1979); Morris Evans Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/1998), lot 2093; and Baltimore Elite Sale (Superior, 7/2003), lot 469. Population: 1 in 65, 0 finer (7/03).(#61882) (PCGS# 61882)
