    Judd-73 Original 1838 Half Dollar Pattern, PR62+

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Original, Pollock-77, R.5, PR62+ NGC. The obverse, once attributed to Chief Engraver William Kneass, is more likely the work of assistant Christian Gobrecht. It depicts a large draped bust of Liberty facing left. A level flying eagle faces left, dominating the reverse. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Strongly reflective with a faint gold overtone and blue-violet elements near the rims. Though the piece shows light to moderate hairlines, its surface quality comes surprisingly close to Select status.
    From The Thompson Collection of US Patterns.
