    Description

    1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-929, R.6, PR 65 Red. Barber's design for the Standard Silver series featuring Liberty seated with her right hand resting on a shield and a tall Liberty pole and cap behind. The reverse is simply designed with 50 CENTS surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn; STANDARD above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. A beautiful gem proof that exhibits complete red luster over both sides with no mellowing or iridescence noted. The only notable defect on the surface of this otherwise immaculate coin is a small spot on the right side of the exergual space just below the base. Actually even rarer than Judd's R.6 rating, more like an R.7. Superior in every way and, yet, typical of the uniform, high quality found in the estate of David Faraday. Ex: 1971 ANA (Stack's, 8/71), lot 464, where the coin realized $150.85, flip accompanies. (NGC ID# 93KN, PCGS# 60929)

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
