    1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper, Judd-959

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-959, Pollock-1110, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. A bust of Liberty faces right. She wears a headband decorated with a star and inscribed LIBERTY. Her hair is tied up in a bun. IN GOD WE TRUST is emblazoned on a scroll below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds the portrait. The reverse has the familiar wreath of corn and cotton, with 50/CENTS/1870 centered therein. STANDARD crowns the wreath. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Less than a half dozen pieces are believed known of this pattern. A well-balanced coin, the surfaces retain much of the original red luster with steel-blue accents in the fields and over the highpoints of the devices.
    From the Frank O. Fredericks Collection, Part III.(#71205)
