    1863 Motto Half Dollar, Struck in Silver
    Judd-342, PR67 Cameo

    1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-342, Pollock-414, Low R.7, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC Ex: Simpson. 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. About a dozen of these patterns are known. It is believed they were produced circa 1869-70 and included in complete backdated With Motto sets.

    Dramatically contrasted surfaces are mostly brilliant, save for areas of thin golden toning at the upper obverse and lower reverse. Liberty and the other raised design elements are thickly frosted and set against glassy, mirrorlike fields. A small lint mark is noted along the lower left edge of the rock.
