    1866 With Motto Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-539, PR62 Brown

    1866 50C Half Dollar, Judd-539, Pollock-604, High R.7, PR62 Brown NGC. A so-called dies trial piece of the standard 1866 proof half dollar (With Motto). Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only a half dozen pieces are believed known. It is highly unlikely this was an actual dies trial piece as there would have been no reason to strike a half dollar in copper. The surfaces are deeply patinated with faint signs of hairlining beneath the depth of color over each side. Fully struck.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
