1861 Judd-277 Half Dollar Pattern, PR66
1861 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-277, Pollock-326, R.7, PR66 NGC.
Regular Dies With GOD OUR TRUST Motto
Design. The regular Seated Liberty half dollar design with the addition of a scroll over the eagle bearing the motto GOD OUR TRUST. The obverse die has the shield point over the right edge of the 1 in the date as described for Pollock-326. Struck in silver with a plain edge.
Commentary. The obverse variants identified as Pollock-326 and Pollock-328 are each listed as R.7, although no census exists to suggest which variety is rarer. A brief review of auction records and other literature suggests that only eight to 10 examples survive of both varieties, and that Pollock-326 is slightly more plentiful than Pollock-328.
Physical Description. An amazing Premium Gem exhibiting pewter-gray surfaces with delicate blue, violet, and gold toning. An absolutely original example with extraordinary eye appeal.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
