    1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-928, PR65+ Deep Cameo

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-928, Pollock-1033, High R.7, PR65+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's always-popular Seated Liberty design. The obverse has Liberty seated left, surrounded by 13 stars with the date below. Liberty supports a shield with her right hand, and holds an olive sprig with her left hand. The shield is inscribed with the banner LIBERTY. The reverse displays a wreath of cotton and corn. 50 CENTS is located high within the wreath, and STANDARD is centered above. Struck in silver with a plain edge. LIBERTY is raised, as always, according to Saul Teichman, though Judd and Pollock say otherwise. Fewer than a dozen Judd-928 proofs are believed extant. Both sides boasts dramatic Deep cameo contrast. This Gem is wholly brilliant and high-end for the grade.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best. Consign with Heritage when you're ready to sell.
