    1867 Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-591, PR68 Red and Brown
    Fantastic Color and Eye Appeal

    1867 50C Half Dollar, Judd-591, Pollock-655, High R.7, PR68 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse are from the regular dies for the 1867 half dollar. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is one of about a half dozen estimated survivors, and it ranks as the sole finest at PCGS and NGC combined, regardless of color category (1/21).

    Eye appeal is exceptional. The design high points feature iridescent violet and ice-blue patina, while the fields are glossy mahogany-brown. Rotation in hand reveals additional shades of rose and vibrant copper-orange. Color, contrast, and preservation are outstanding. A spectacular copper half dollar worthy of a generous bid.
