    1869 Standard Silver Half in Silver
    Judd-754, Deeply Toned PR65

    1869 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-754, Pollock-838, R.5, PR65 PCGS. A bust of Liberty faces right and wears a headband inscribed LIBERTY. The headband is ornamented with a star. 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 in a wreath of oak and laurel with STANDARD SILVER above and the date 1869 below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Reeded edge silver examples are fairly common, but plain edge examples are seldom seen, as are the pieces struck in copper and aluminum. The obverse is covered in cobalt-blue and the reverse shows a rose-colored center with the same cobalt-blue around the margins. Still brightly reflective in the fields in spite of the considerable patina. (NGC ID# 29T5, PCGS# 60984)
