    1861 Copper GOD OUR TRUST Half
    Judd-278, PR63 Red and Brown

    1861 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-278, Pollock-327, Low R.7, PR63 Red and Brown NGC. The design is similar to the regular issue Seated half dollar, but GOD OUR TRUST is placed within a scroll above the eagle. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Pollock makes no mention of two date placements on the copper strikings of this design. But for those keeping score, the shield point is over the right side of the 1 in the date. states "Full red copper examples are extremely rare." While this piece is not completely red, there is a significant presence. Just the slightest shadings off of red are noted. The fields are deeply reflective also. A couple of copper spots are seen in the exergue.
