    1838 Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-77 Restrike, PR63 Red and Brown
    Ex: Farouk-Turoff

    1838 P50C Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Judd-77 Restrike, Pollock-85, High R.7 PR63 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 seen 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 four pieces are known of this elusive pattern.
