    1869 Standard Silver Half, Judd-743, PR66

    1869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-743, Pollock-824, High R.6, PR66 NGC. A bust of Liberty faces right and wears 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, and the date is located beneath. William Barber's initial B is recut above the L in LIBERTY, which is also recut (and softly struck), as are both reverse stars. Struck in silver with a plain edge. The brightly reflective surfaces are covered with variegated purple and sea-green toning on the obverse, with bright blue patina on the reverse. Exceptionally well preserved. (NGC ID# 29ST, PCGS# 60971)
