    Rare 1870 Standard Silver Pattern Half in Silver With Deep Cameo Contrast

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-951, Pollock-1094, R.5-6, PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: New Millennium Collection, Part 3. The bust of Liberty faces right on the obverse with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on a scroll below. Liberty's hair is tied in a bun. On the reverse, the denomination 50 CENTS and date 1870 are in a wreath of cotton and corn with the inscription STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This pleasing specimen has light apricot patina and exceptional cameo contrast. The strike is above average for the design, which usually betrays more noticeable weakness in the centers. The upper reverse field has a faint fingerprint fragment, but the surfaces are seemingly free from hairlines. The dies are slightly rotated counterclockwise.(#61197) (NGC ID# 6M58, PCGS# 61197)
