    1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar
    Very Rare Judd-972
    PR64 Red and Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-972, Pollock-1083, High R.7, PR64 Red and Brown NGC. Ex: Simpson. The starred Liberty cap obverse is surrounded by UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and a scroll below with E PLURIBUS UNUM. The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center and is encircled by a wreath, which is in turn encircled with STANDARD SILVER 1869. Struck in copper with a plain edge. For a Standard Silver pattern this is a remarkably rare Judd variety. Only a single prior example, graded NGC PR62 Brown, appears in our online auction archives. This is a splendidly toned specimen draped in cherry-red, lime-green, and sun-gold shades. Fully struck, satiny, and unabraded with a few minor and unimportant obverse spots.
    Ex: Jascha Heifetz Collection (Superior, 10/1989), lot 3266; Baltimore Sale (Stack's-Bowers, 3/2012), lot 7177. (NGC ID# 29YZ, PCGS# 71218)
