    1862 With Motto Half in Silver
    Judd-293, PR65 Cameo

    1862 50C Half Dollar, Judd-293, Pollock-351, R.5, PR65 Cameo PCGS. A regular Seated half obverse is paired with a pattern reverse, the as-issued design save for GOD OUR TRUST within a banner on the field above the eagle. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Collected as a precursor the now-familiar IN GOD WE TRUST motto that was adopted in 1866. Approximately two dozen examples are known in silver of this design and another dozen are believed extant in copper. This is an all-brilliant piece that exhibits unfathomably deep mirrors in the fields with sharply contrasting mint frost over the devices, yielding the always-desirable cameo contrast. Fully struck in all areas.
