    1838 Seated Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-77 Restrike, PR66+ Red and Brown

    1838 P50C Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Judd-77 Restrike, Pollock-85, High R.7 PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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. Four examples of Judd-77 are known. These, like other patterns of this type in different metal/edge combinations, were actually produced during the 1870s. Heavy die rust on the reverse is a telltale diagnostic for restrikes, as is the incuse LIBERTY on the obverse. Both sides are glossy brown with iridescent accents of violet, olive-gold, and bluish toning when rotated. The coin is near-flawlessly preserved and virtually fully struck, save for a touch of softness on the eagle's breast.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
