    1863 'With Motto' Half Dollar
    PR67+ ★ Cameo
    Judd-342, Brilliant and Strongly Contrasted

    1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-342, Pollock-414, Low R.7, PR67+ ★ Cameo NGC. The obverse and reverse designs for Judd-342 are similar to those used to strike regular issue With Motto coinage in 1866, except for the 1863 date. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. USPatterns.com states these patterns were actually produced in the late 1860s to early 1870s, and marketed in pattern sets with other restrikes made during that time period. About a dozen pieces are known in silver.

    The surfaces of this magnificent coin are completely brilliant. This brilliance allows full appreciation of the extraordinary surfaces. Not only is this piece well-preserved, as one would expect from the PR67+ grade, but the Cameo effect is profound on each side with stark white-on-black contrast. Tied for the finest of 12 certified (6/17), although the two PR67+ submissions almost certainly represent just one coin.
