    1838 Seated Half Pattern in Silver
    Judd-80, PR63

    1838 P50C Seated Liberty Half Dollar, Judd-80 Restrike, Pollock-87, High R.7, PR63 NGC. The obverse design is a slightly modified Seated Liberty motif, with the rock larger, the stars spaced differently, and Liberty's drapery rearranged. The word LIBERTY is incused on the scroll. The date is in the exergue. The reverse features a "defiant" eagle, clutching an olive branch and six arrows, with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and HALF DOL. below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The Judd-80 is apparently a restrike from the late 1860s or early 1870s. Only a half dozen examples are known in silver and copper. While termed a restrike, no originals are known. The strike is weakly defined in the center of each side, most likely because the relief was too high on both obverse and reverse. As a result there was not enough metal to fill the recesses of the design. The color is well-balanced with brown and blue patina intermixed throughout.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection.
