1861 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-280, Pollock-331, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A regular dies obverse is paired with a reverse the same as the regular issue, except that the motto GOD OUR TRUST is set directly onto the upper field. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. These GOD OUR TRUST patterns were precursors to the IN GOD WE TRUST coinage introduced in 1866. The present near-Gem half dollar enjoys smooth chocolate-brown surfaces and pinpoint definition. The obverse features a light crosshatch toning pattern similar to what long-term storage in a canvas bag might produce. A small area of verdigris above star 12 is the only imperfection.
