    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-960, Pollock-1112, Low R.7, PR63 Brown NGC. Standard Silver design showing Liberty wearing a coronet inscribed LIBERTY in raised letters. The reverse reads 50 CENTS 1870 in the center, surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn. Struck in copper with a plain edge. USPatterns.com estimates that less than a dozen survive.
