    Gem Aluminum 1869 Half Dollar Die Trial, Judd-761

    1869 50C Half Dollar, Judd-761, Pollock-846, R.7, PR65 PCGS. Regular die trials issue for the Seated half. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. These pieces were deliberately struck by the Mint for sale to collectors as part of off-metal sets. Fewer than a half dozen are known today and this piece is certainly among the finest extant. The fields are deeply mirrored and show no traces of oxidation. The devices are heavily frosted and present a strong cameo contrast against the deeply reflective fields.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29TD, PCGS# 60992)
