    Impressive and Rare William Barber 1870 Seated Half Pattern
    Judd-933, PR65

    1870 50C Half Dollar, Judd-933, Pollock-1039, Low R.7, PR65 NGC. William Barber's Seated Liberty design, interesting for its placement of the shield behind her legs which is supported with her right hand. She holds an olive branch in her left. A liberty pole is behind the shield and a scroll crosses the shield and is inscribed LIBERTY in incused letters. The reverse is the type used for regular issue Seated halves. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Iridescent peach, electric-blue, and orange-rose colors are seen over this flashy Gem. A needle-sharp, gorgeous, and undisturbed representative that will make an outstanding contribution to the advanced collection of a pattern specialist. (NGC ID# 29Y5, PCGS# 61179)
