    1870 Barber Seated Liberty Half Dollar
    Judd-938 in Aluminum, PR65 Cameo

    1870 50C Half Dollar, Judd-938, Pollock-1045, High R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Denali Collection. The obverse die has a William Barber portrait of seated Liberty, the word LIBERTY in raised letters on a ribbon falling across the shield, thirteen stars around, date below. The reverse die is the regular design. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Doubtless sold as part of an exotic-metal set, this aluminum Gem Cameo proof has excellent remaining luster and distinct contrast. While a touch of hazy patina has settled over the obverse fields, the reverse with its blue-tinged gleam is clearer in both reflectivity and contrast.
