    Toned Gem 1869 Standard Silver Half Dollar

    1869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-742, Pollock-823, R.5, PR66 NGC. A bust of Liberty wearing a cap ornamented with two stars faces right, the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds the figure, and a scroll with IN GOD WE TRUST is below. The reverse has 50 CENTS centered within a wreath of oak and laurel leaves with STANDARD SILVER above and the date 1869 below. The NGC insert has this pattern attributed as Judd-747, which is the same design but aluminum composition and a plain edge. We are certain that it is struck in silver and believe it have a reeded edge. The surfaces are well mirrored with violet toning about the obverse periphery while deeper violet and blue iridescent shades dominate the heavily striated reverse.(#60969) (NGC ID# 29SS, PCGS# 60969)
