    Judd-978, Copper, PR63 Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-978, Pollock-1090, High R.7, PR63 Brown PCGS. A bust of Liberty faces right on the obverse with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on a scroll below.

The initial B is seen within the folds of the ribbon behind Liberty's cap, and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is at the upper periphery. On the reverse, the denomination 50 CENTS is expressed within a wreath of oak and laurel. The date 1870 is below, the word STANDARD is above. Struck in copper with a plain edge. An intricately struck tan-brown, olive-green, and lavender-red specimen. The surfaces appear unabraded, though minute ebony freckles are distributed throughout. The radial obverse die crack at 7:30 is well advanced.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
