1863 With Motto Half Dollar in Aluminum
1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-344 Pollock-416, High R.7, PR66+
PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular dies for the 1863
Seated Liberty half dollar in aluminum with a reeded edge. The With
Motto pieces were coined at the Mint in the late 1860s and into
early 1870, based on the appearance of an example at auction in
April 1870. The USPatterns.com website identifies five confirmed
examples of this Judd variety, and this piece is the finest of four
submissions that PCGS has certified (4/20). Although not designated
as a Cameo, this Premium Gem has exceptional field-device contrast
with deeply mirrored light gray fields and sharply defined,
lustrous devices. With this offering, Heritage has handled all five
of the known examples of Judd-344.
