    Rare Gilt Die Trial For the 1870 Half Eagle, Judd-1032

    1870 Half Eagle, Judd-1032, Pollock-1167, R.7, PR 64 Gilt. Regular die trials issue for the half eagle of 1870. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. A rare and unusual die trial, this issue was struck in copper, aluminum, and nickel. An attractive piece that retains complete gilting on each side. The fields are reflective and the piece looks deceptively like a proof regular issue. It is only when handled that one notices it comes up a bit light in weight. A couple of intersecting scrapes are noted in the left obverse field. On the upper reverse are remnants of a fingerprint, the acids in the skin apparently being strong enough to react with the copper even through the gilt outer layer. A scarce and desirable die trial. (PCGS# 61032)
