    Extremely Scarce 1838 Half Dollar Restrike in Copper, Judd-77

    1838 P50C Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Judd-77 Restrike, Pollock-85, R.8, PR 63 Red and Brown PCGS. The obverse features the regular issue No Drapery design, while the reverse has a heraldic eagle in the center that is similar to the two cent patterns from 1836. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The restrike status of this piece is clearly evidenced by the extensive die rust on the reverse. The surfaces have an underlying bright, cherry-red color from an old cleaning that has since toned over to a great extent. Apparently only three pieces are known of this elusive pattern.
    Ex: Farouk Sale (Sotheby's, 1954), lot 1726; Cox Collection (Stack's, 4/62), lot 2191.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 296W, PCGS# 11310)
