    1838 Kneass-Designed Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-73 Restrike, PR61

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR61 PCGS. A draped bust of Liberty faces left on the obverse, with a flying eagle dominating the reverse. Kneass was once believed to designed this pattern, but visual evidence points to Christian Gobrecht, since the face of Liberty bears a strong resemblance to her counterpart on the Liberty eagle, also introduced in 1838. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Medallic alignment. The reverse is cracked in the usual places. Probably 50 to 60 pieces are known. Originals are supposed to exist, and if found they should weigh 206 grains with limited reverse die cracks. Dusky dove-gray toning blankets the fields and motifs, while the borders exhibit peach-gold patina. The strike is bold, and no marks or hairlines detract. Housed within a green label holder.
