    1860 Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-269, PR65 Brown
    Defaced Inside the Mint

    1860 E50C Half Dollar, Judd-269, Pollock-317, R.8 -- Mint Defaced -- PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular No Motto Seated Liberty dies of 1860 in copper with the edge lettered E PLURIBUS UNUM. The edge lettering is extremely faint. The heavy marks on each side are considered cancellation marks that occurred with the Mint, and are therefore not considered damage. Rather, they add to the intrigue and importance of this extremely rare pattern, one of just three known. The Gem brown surfaces are virtually free of imperfections, featuring attractive blue toning, and considerable original red mint color. This is the only example that PCGS has certified (9/20).
