The reverse reads 50 CENTS 1870 in the center and is surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn. These pieces were sold with the other denominations for $15 at the time of issue. Fewer than a dozen examples are believed known today. Struck in copper with a plain edge, and the dies are rotated slightly counterclockwise. A brick-red near-Gem with an exceptionally sharp strike on the central letters in LIBERTY. A few tiny carbon flecks do not reduce the eye appeal of this difficult pattern.
