    1838 Kneass / Gobrecht Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-72, PR62

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5 PR62 PCGS. CAC. A large bust of Liberty faces left, with stars and the date at the margins. The reverse features an eagle with spread wings. For many decades, the obverse design was attributed to William Kneass, but Gobrecht was almost certainly the engraver, as the portrait bears close resemblance to the gold eagle also introduced in 1838. Struck in silver with a reeded edge with a medal turn. An estimated 50-60 pieces are known. This is a bright example with untoned centers and lightly toned margins. Lightly hairlined.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 296M, PCGS# 11282)
