    Description

    1838 Judd-72 Half Dollar, PR67
    Perfect Dies

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-72, Pollock-75, R.5, PR67 NGC.
    Design.
    A draped bust of Liberty facing left wears a diadem and a hair ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. The date appears below the bust with 13 stars around. The reverse presents an eagle with distinctive feathers, holding an olive branch and four arrows in its talons. The complete denomination is expressed as HALF DOLLAR below the eagle with the statutory legend around. Struck in silver with a reeded edge and medal-turn die alignment. Both dies are crisp with no evidence of die lapping, clash marks, cracks, or rust marks.

    Commentary. NGC weighed the piece at 12.4 grams. The perfect (uncracked) state of the dies suggests this is an early restrike. NGC has certified two examples as PR67, the other one designated as a Cameo proof (3/13).

    Physical Description. The centers of this Superb Gem proof exhibit reddish-orange patina within a frame of light blue and violet toning. The fields are fully mirrored beneath the toning, with lustrous devices and a hint of contrast.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
