    1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper
    Judd-959, PR66 Red and Brown
    Almost Full Mint Red

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-959, Pollock-1110, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. 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. Fewer than a half dozen of these pieces are known, according to USPatterns.com. This is a brightly reflective piece whose surfaces are just a touch off of full red, but not by much. As such, this piece represents excellent value and is one of the finest examples known. (NGC ID# 29YR, PCGS# 71205)
