    1862 GOD OUR TRUST Half Dollar
    Judd-295, PR63

    1862 50C Half Dollar, Judd-295, Pollock-353, R.5, PR63 PCGS. The obverse is the regular-issue Seated Liberty half dollar, while the reverse, left over from 1861 pattern strikes, has a scroll-less GOD OUR TRUST in the field above the eagle's head. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The motto is a precursor to the now-familiar IN GOD WE TRUST adopted in 1866. Approximately two dozen are known, with W. Elliot Woodward stating in his May 1863 catalog that 25 sets were struck. The fields are brightly mirrored. Overall the surfaces are light in color and accented with scarlet and blue peripheral patina. Lightly hairlined.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29E6, PCGS# 60445)
