    1838 Gobrecht Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-73 Restrike, PR64+

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. 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 ten dollar Liberty, also introduced in 1838. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Medallic alignment. Probably all Judd-73 halves are restrikes, since the three prominent radial cracks on the reverse do not appear on Judd-79 patterns, which were struck in 1838. The obverse exhibits mottled gray-rose toning with occasional dabs of brilliance showing, while the reverse has a pronounced reddish hue with cobalt-blue around the margin.
