    1870 Standard Silver Half in Silver
    Judd-952, Toned PR64

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-952, Pollock-1095, Low R.7, PR64 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 an agricultural wreath of cotton and corn, with the inscription STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a plain edge. As usually seen in the Standard Silver series, the silver strikings are the most frequently encountered. Copper and aluminum pieces were also produced (all in reeded and plain edge format). As such, this would be an excellent opportunity for the collector to acquire an attractive, well-preserved Standard Silver half. Light rose centers are surrounded by sea-green margins. The obverse is several shades lighter than the reverse and the obverse displays considerable reflectivity in the fields.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29YL, PCGS# 61198)
