Description

PR65 Brown 1870 Half Dollar Pattern in Copper
Judd-936, Iridescent Surfaces, Ex: Lemus

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.
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 / Orlando FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1762; Milwaukee Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2010), lot 3394. (NGC ID# 29Y8, PCGS# 61182)
