Iridescently Toned 1870 Copper Half Dollar
1870 50C Half Dollar, Judd-936, Pollock-1042, High R.6, PR65
Brown NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. A seated figure of Liberty
faces left on the obverse with 13 stars surrounding. The date is
below, a free-standing Liberty pole is behind, and LIBERTY is
inscribed on a scroll crossing a small shield. Paired with a
regular-dies Seated half reverse, struck in copper with a plain
edge. The same design as Judd-935, but with a plain edge that was
produced by a smooth, unreeded collar. Like Judd-935, about 15 or
16 examples of this copper pattern are known.
Judd-936, PR65 Brown
A remarkable display of medium green and gold iridescence appears over the fully and deeply mirrored fields on both sides of this Gem proof. A few tiny spots are evident but are of little consequence. The obverse and reverse design motifs are fully lustrous, creating an excellent cameo appearance.
Ex: Stack's (8/1971), lot 466; Lemus Collection (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1762. (NGC ID# 29Y8, PCGS# 61182)
