    1838 Half Dollar, PR63
    Judd-73 Restrike in Silver

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR63 PCGS Secure. On the obverse, Liberty faces left and wears a diadem and a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. Thirteen stars and the date fill the periphery. On the reverse, an eagle flies level in a plain field with the statutory legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, with the denomination HALF DOLLAR below. Kneass is believed to have designed this pattern, but Christian Gobrecht has been credited as the designer. 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. It is estimated that 50 to 60 examples are known, all restrikes produced between the 1840s and 1870s. Each side is brilliant with reflective fields. The strike is incomplete over the centers, where heavy roller marks are apparent.
    From The Kentfield Collection.
