    1864 Half Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-393, PR67+ Cameo
    The Only PCGS Cameo Proof

    1864 50C Half Dollar, Judd-393, Pollock-461, R.8, PR67+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the regular issue Seated Liberty design for 1864 half dollars, and the reverse is the With Motto design that was introduced in 1866. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Traditionally called transitional patterns, most scholars now believe that these With Motto patterns were struck at a later date specifically for contemporary 19th century collectors. These pieces, apparently offered in sets, were struck in silver, copper, aluminum, and nickel. The USPatterns website indicates that just two or three of these are known in aluminum, and this Superb Gem is the only Cameo example that PCGS has certified (1/21). This lovely light gray piece has exceptional eye appeal with strong field-device contrast. The deeply mirrored fields provide a splendid background for the lustrous, sharply defined devices.
