    Description

    1864 With Motto Half in Silver
    Judd-391, PR65+ Deep Cameo
    Ex: Bass

    1864 50C Half Dollar, Judd-391, Pollock-459, Low R.7, PR65+ Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Bass-Simpson. Transitional striking for the half dollar. The obverse has the usually seen obverse, while the reverse has the With Motto reverse as adopted in 1866. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. These pieces are actually restrikes made circa 1869 and into the early 1870s, offered with restrikes of other denominations in complete sets. Only a dozen or so silver strikes are known. Pieces were also struck in silver (again, about a dozen known), aluminum (only two known), and nickel (also two known). This is a dazzling, untoned silver example of this popular backdated issue. The fields are exceptionally deep with heavily frosted devices that provide the Deep Cameo designation.
    Ex: Doug Weaver (1/21/1974) to Harry Bass; Pollock plate coin; Harry Bass Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1999), lot 1187.
