    1863 With Motto Half in Aluminum
    Judd-344, PR65+
    Only Four Pieces Believed Known

    1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-344, Pollock-416, High R.7, PR65+ NGC. A regular issue 1863 obverse is paired with a regular issue (post-1866) With Motto reverse. Although dated 1863, this piece was likely struck in the early 1870s as part of a complete denominational set of 1863 With Motto patterns. These were probably struck at the same time as the 1864- and 1865-dated With Motto restrikes. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Only four pieces are believed known in aluminum. The surfaces are bright, with deeply reflective fields that give the piece a definite cameo appearance. There are no traces of oxidation in the form of spots, but slight haziness can be seen over each side. The planchet shows signs of stress and cracking, but there are no noticeable contact marks on either side of this lovely Gem. (NGC ID# 29FY, PCGS# 60506)
