    1870 Standard Silver Half in Aluminum
    Judd-962, PR66 Cameo

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-962, Pollock-1115, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. A bust of Liberty faces right, wearing 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 within. STANDARD is located above the wreath. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. One of fewer than a half dozen examples extant, according to, and the first Judd-962 we have handled since at least 1993, when our Permanent Auction Archives were established. This Gem proof rarity features black-and-white Cameo contrast. Contact marks, planchet flakes, and other tiny imperfections are virtually unseen and inconsequential.
