    1865 Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-432, PR64 Brown

    1865 50C Half Dollar, Judd-432, Pollock-505, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from regular issue dies, including a reeded edge, but in copper instead of silver. Two different date positions are known. The present specimen is the "date right" variant with the upright of the 1 nearly beneath the shield point. About a half-dozen examples are known in copper. While labeled Brown, that hardly describes the surfaces of this piece. Muted red patina, sea-green, and pale blue are seen over each side. Sharply detailed throughout.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29JJ, PCGS# 60617)
