    1870 Seated Liberty Half in Copper
    Judd-930, PR65 Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-930, Pollock-1035, High R.7, PR65 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This William Barber design features Liberty seated and facing left, surrounded by 13 stars. She steadies a shield with her right hand, while her left hand holds an olive branch. A Liberty pole is partly concealed behind the shield. A scroll crossing the shield features a raised inscription of LIBERTY. The date is centered below. The reverse has a wreath of corn and cotton, with 50 CENTS inside and STANDARD above. This muling of pattern Seated and Standard Silver dies led to the absence of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Fewer than a dozen pieces are known with this metallic / edge combination. This is a splendid example. The fields are bright and reflective, the resulting in multicolored iridescence on each side. The devices are heavily frosted as well.
