    Vividly Toned 1869 Standard Silver Half, Judd-748

    1869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-748, Pollock-831, R.5, PR64 PCGS. Standard Silver design with a bust of Liberty facing right on the obverse. Liberty is wearing a diadem inscribed LIBERTY, the legend is around the border, and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll at the bottom. The reverse exhibits the denomination 50 CENTS within a wreath of oak and laurel. STANDARD SILVER is at the periphery, the date 1869 is below the wreath. The left star is repunched. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The deep navy-blue and mauve patina reveals apricot hues when the pattern is rotated under a light. The letters in LIBERTY and CENTS offer occasional softness of strike, and a few wispy obverse hairlines do not distract. The dies are slightly rotated counterclockwise.
    From the Frank O. Fredericks Collection, Part III.(#60977) (NGC ID# 26VS, PCGS# 60977)
