    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.
