    Silver GOD OUR TRUST 1862 Half
    Judd-295, PR63

    1862 50C Half Dollar, Judd-295, Pollock-353, R.5, PR63 NGC.
    Design.
    The regular-issue Liberty Seated half dollar dies of the year, with GOD OUR TRUST on the reverse between the eagle's wings, no scroll. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

    Commentary.
    Perhaps two dozen are known in silver. While this makes a pattern to be considered "fairly available," one would do well to remember that if this were a regular-issue U.S. coin, it would be viewed as incredibly rare.

    Physical Description.
    Slight hairlining explains the PR63 grade, but the obverse is nicely reflective in the fields, while the reverse has the expected die striations that remain from incomplete die polishing. Deep reddish-gray in the centers with sky-blue around the rims. A well-balanced and attractive coin for the grade. NGC Census: 4 in PR63, 7 finer. PCGS Population: 2 in PR63, 10 finer (12/08).

    Provenance.
    Ex: The River Oaks and C.W. Krugjohann, Part II Collections (Bowers and Ruddy, 11/1976), lot 971.
    From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two. (NGC ID# 29E6, PCGS# 60445)
