    1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper
    Judd-972, Pollock-1083
    PR64 Red and Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-972, Pollock-1083, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. 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. Three variants are known with this same basic obverse / reverse design. Pollock-1083 has LIBERTY in raised letters and the end of the cap is located beneath the second S in STATES (rather than under the E). This is a beautiful copper coin that has been well cared for. Significant portions of each side still retain mint red, but the "Brown" portions are not really brown at all, but are more lilac in hue. Terrifically appealing and an especially good value for the grade.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
