    1870 Aluminum Seated Half Pattern, PR66 Cameo
    Judd-994, High R.7

    1870 50C Half Dollar, Judd-994, Pollock-1124, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Denali Collection. From regular issue Seated Liberty half dollar dies, but struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. An extremely rare die trials pattern that may have been produced as part of an aluminum alloy proof set for presentation purposes, or for sale to well-connected collectors. This specimen, crisply struck and remarkably light in the hand, also is carefully preserved with faint glimpses of greenish-gold patina over the pale whiteness of aluminum. Clearly contrasted fields and devices make for excellent all-around eye appeal. One of the most remarkable survivors from this extremely rare issue.
