    1838 Half Dollar Pattern, Gem Proof
    Judd-73 Restrike, Beautifully Toned

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR65 NGC. CAC. On the obverse, Liberty faces left and wears a diadem and a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. 13 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, and the denomination HALF DOLLAR below. Christian Gobrecht is credited as designer, and 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. A beautifully toned Gem draped in peach, violet, and aquamarine shades. The medal turn and bold reverse die cracks confirm restrike status.
    From The Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection.
