    Description

    1869 Half Dollar, Judd-742, Pollock-823, R.5-6, PR 64 NGC. The bust of Liberty faces right with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and a scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST below. Liberty wears a cap ornamented with two large stars. William Barber's initial "B" can be seen within the folds of the ribbon at the back of the cap. Reverse: the denomination 50 CENTS and the date 1870 are within a wreath of cotton and corn, with the inscription STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The bright proof mirrors are accented by rich golden-rose and cobalt-blue toning that surrounds the devices and margins. Lightly hairlined, the most apparent flaw is a vertical scratch that extends from the point of the chin to almost the ribbon below. (PCGS# 60742)
