    Description

    Select Proof 1870 Standard Silver Half
    Judd-951, Struck in Silver

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-951, Pollock-1094, R.5, PR63 PCGS. 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. A nearly untoned specimen with a hint of peripheral golden-gray. The centers lack full definition due to the uncommonly high relief bust. A wispy vertical hairline on the portrait decides the grade.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29YK, PCGS# 61197)
