Description

    Exquisite Gem Judd-72 1838 Half

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5, PR65 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg Collection. The William Kneass/Christian Gobrecht design for the half dollar that features a draped bust of Liberty facing left with stars on the left and right, date below. The reverse shows a stately drop-wing eagle without shield. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Believed to be an earlier restrike (circa 1858), as there is little evidence of die rust and only slight softness in the centers. The reverse is medallically aligned with the obverse. Attractive peripheral toning in dappled shades of golden-violet and turquoise enlivens highly reflective surfaces.
    Ex: Winsor Collection (Chapman Brothers, 12/1895), lot 1109; J.M. Clapp; Clapp Estate, 1942; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/96), lot 230. (NGC ID# 3YLW, PCGS# 11282)
