    1864 Half Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-395, PR65 Cameo
    The Finer of Two Known

    1864 50C Half Dollar, Judd-395, Pollock-463, R.8, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Originally described as a regular die trials striking for the half dollar. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. However, as with most off-metal strikings, this was most likely produced for sale by Mint personnel to favored customers. Only two examples are known of this rarity, this PR65 Cameo and a PR65. This is a magnificent aluminum pattern. The fields are deeply mirrored with thick mint frost over the devices, as often seen on aluminum patterns. This is a rare opportunity to acquire the finer of only two known examples of this unusual off-metal striking.
