    1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper
    Judd-983, PR65 Red and Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-983, Pollock-1103, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Liberty faces right, hair tied in a bun, wearing a starless diadem inscribed LIBERTY. IN GOD WE TRUST is on a scroll at the bottom rim, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around. On the reverse, a wreath of corn and cotton encloses 50 / CENTS, the latter in an upcurving arc, with STANDARD at the upper rim and the date 1870 inside the wreath. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Examples were also struck in silver and aluminum, both reeded and plain edge variants. The mint red is considerably subdued on this piece and subtle iridescence is seen over each side. An attractive and more affordable pattern.
