    1838 Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-73 Restrike, PR64
    Attractive Border Toning

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR64 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. 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 present piece is an earlier die state than sometimes seen, since there is no radial crack through the U in UNITED. This is a well-mirrored Choice specimen with peripheral plum-red and cobalt-blue toning. The centers display minor incompleteness of strike. No detractions are evident.
