    1863 Half Dollar, Judd-340, PR63 Cameo
    GOD OUR TRUST, Struck in Silver

    1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-340, Pollock-412, Low R.6, PR63 Cameo PCGS. The Judd-340 is similar to the regular-issue 1863-dated Seated halves, but GOD OUR TRUST appears without a scroll in the upper reverse field, where eventually IN GOD WE TRUST with a scroll would appear on the normal 1866 Motto issues. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. These pieces were also made in copper (Judd-341); the silver pieces are rarer, estimating that seven originals were produced, and later restrikes made, about two dozen surviving in all today; the two are indistinguishable, to our knowledge. Pollock writes that "minute date placement varieties may exist." This ice-white piece shows blatant contrast with tiny marks that account for the grade.
