    1863 GOD OUR TRUST Half, Bronzed Copper
    Judd-341, PR65 Brown

    1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-341, Pollock-413, R.5, PR65 Brown NGC. The obverse die is that of regular-issue half dollars in 1863. The reverse presents the regular spread-wing eagle but with the motto GOD OUR TRUST set directly in the field, rather than on a scroll, a feature attributed to George Eckfeldt for Mint Director James Pollock. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The surfaces are even, dark brown from bronzing done in the Mint. The strike is pinpoint-sharp throughout.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
