    Exceptional 1838 Half Dollar Pattern
    Judd-73 Restrike, PR66 ★

    1838 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-73 Restrike, Pollock-77, R.5, PR66 ★ NGC. The obverse, once attributed to Chief Engraver William Kneass, is more likely the work of assistant Christian Gobrecht. It depicts a large draped bust of Liberty facing left. Medallic alignment. A level flying eagle faces left and dominates the reverse. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Three die cracks are seen on the reverse. The difference between originals and restrikes is determined not by the presence of die cracks, as one might think, but by weight (206 grains vs. 143 grains) and reed count (143-145 reeds vs. 146 reeds). Like the previous Judd-72, the surfaces are reddish-golden and turn blue around the margins with deeply mirrored fields.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Three. (NGC ID# 296N, PCGS# 11288)
