    1869 Standard Silver Half in Silver
    Judd-743, PR63+ Cameo

    1869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-743, Pollock-824, High R.6, PR63+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A bust of Liberty faces right, wearing a cap ornamented with large stars. A ribbon inscribed LIBERTY rests on her shoulder. IN GOD WE TRUST resides within a scroll below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA encircles her head. On the reverse, STANDARD SILVER is centered above the familiar wreath of cotton and corn. 50 CENTS is placed within the wreath; the date is beneath. William Barber's initial B is punched in above the L in LIBERTY, which is repunched. Struck in silver with a plain edge. Fewer than a dozen examples of Judd-743 are known. This Plus-graded Select proof is sharply detailed and lightly marked, with deeply reflective fields that contrast boldly with the frosty devices. Delicate highlights of lime-green and lavender-gray toning enhance the strong eye appeal. Population: 1 in 63 (1 in 63+) Cameo, 2 finer (1/21).
