    1838 Kneass / Paquet Half Dollar Mule in Copper
    Judd-75b (Formerly Judd-255), PR62 Brown
    Perhaps Only Two Examples Known

    1838 50C Half Dollar, Judd-75b (formerly Judd-255), Pollock-81, R.8, PR62 Brown NGC. This mule pairs the Kneass-designed obverse with the bust of Liberty facing left, with the Paquet-designed reverse from 1859 that shows a perched eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only two examples of this rare muling are believed known, and both are believed to have come from the Farouk collection. The surfaces are richly toned in multiple shades with significant brightness radiating from the fields.
