    1838 Gobrecht-Designed Half Dollar Pattern, Judd-79a

    1838 P50C Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Judd-79a, Pollock-86, R.7, PR63 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. The obverse is similar to the adopted design of 1839. The reverse is an early impression from Gobrecht's flying eagle design, which makes this coin a reduced version of the Gobrecht Dollar. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The surfaces are bright and mostly pearl-gray with wisps of golden-brown and blue toning around the margins. A rare and infrequently offered pattern.
    Ex: Chapman Brothers April 1897 Sale; J.M. Clapp; Clapp Estate, 1942, to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/96), lot 233, where it brought $7,920. (NGC ID# 296Z, PCGS# 11328)
