    William Barber's Design For the 1869 Standard Silver Half Dollar

    1869 Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-746, Pollock-828, R.7, PR 64 PCGS. A William Barber design for the Standard Silver series with Liberty facing right, her hat ornamented with two stars, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the margin with the motto set on a scroll beneath the bust of Liberty. On the reverse, 50 CENTS is set within a wreath of oak and laurel leaves with STANDARD SILVER 1869 at the margin. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Several small planchet flaws are scattered across each side, but the surfaces are unoxidized. The whiteness of the aluminum is tempered by a slight gray haze on the obverse. A rare and seldom-seen pattern. (PCGS# 60746)
