    Description

    1862 With Motto Half in Copper
    GOD OUR TRUST
    Judd-294, PR64+ Brown

    1862 50C Half Dollar, Judd-294, Pollock-352, Low R.7, PR64+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The design is similar to that used on regular issue 1862 Seated half dollars, except that a scroll with the motto GOD OUR TRUST is present above the eagle's head. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Color and field reflectivity are the main focal points on this near-Gem. The surfaces on each side have taken on a rich blue color which contrasts sharply with the original mint red that still surrounds most of the devices. Well-balanced in appearance from side to side. A couple of small marks in the exergue are all that prevent a higher grade.
