    PR66 Brown Judd-930 Copper
    1870 Standard Silver Half

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-930, Pollock-1035, High R.7, PR66 Brown PCGS Secure. Ex: Simpson and Stonewall Collections. The William Barber design. A seated Liberty faces 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. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Judd notes the "illogical die combination with no mention of the United States of America."
    As far as is now known, all examples of the Judd-927 through Judd-932 show a raised LIBERTY across the shield ribbon, despite some confusion about the issue in the Pollock reference. Fewer than a dozen examples are known of this rare pattern, according to Even the magnificent Lemus Collection that we offered in January 2009 lacked an example. This piece features boldly struck, smooth, glossy chocolate-brown surfaces with some muted red on the reverse.
    From The Stonewall Collection.
