    Cameo Premium Gem 1870 Standard Silver Half

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-951, Pollock-1094, R.5, PR66 Cameo NGC. 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. The center of the reverse is not fully struck, as often encountered with this high relief obverse design. Brilliant throughout, the fields are deeply mirrored and the devices are expectantly frosted, which yields the cameo contrast as noted on the NGC insert. The surfaces are nearly flawless with the only "defect" of note being a squiggly lint mark in the right obverse field in front of Liberty's eye.(#61197) (NGC ID# 29YK, PCGS# 61197)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
