    1838 Kneass Half-Dollar, Judd-72, in PR 64, Ex: Eliasberg

    1838 Half-Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5, PR 64 PCGS. The William Kneass design for the half-dollar featuring a draped bust of Liberty facing left with stars on the left and right, date below. The reverse shows a stately drop-wing eagle without shield. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Believed to be a restrike coined circa 1858 or later. There is some evidence of die rust on the reverse, but only slight softness in the centers. The reverse is medallically aligned to the obverse. Deeply toned gunmetal-blue and gray-golden colors with highly reflective proof fields shining through. A high-end example of this popular design.
    Ex: Eliasberg (Bowers & Merena, 5/96), lot 230. (PCGS# 60072)
