    Copper 1865 With Motto Half Dollar
    Judd-430, PR63 Brown

    1865 50C Half Dollar, Judd-430, Pollock-503, High R.6, PR63 Brown NGC. Regular dies trial issue. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This popular transitional issue is believed to have been struck along with other restrikes dated 1863 and 1864. It is possible, however, that some of the dozen or so known examples were actually struck in 1865. The surfaces were cleaned at one time, and each side displays underlying brightness. Otherwise both obverse and reverse have a mixture of deep blue and brown patina with occasional hints of red. A few tiny lint marks are present, as struck into the planchet at the time of manufacture.
    From The Bob Simpson Collection. (NGC ID# 29JG, PCGS# 60615)
