    1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar Pattern, Judd-985

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-985, Pollock-1106, R.7, PR64 Cameo PCGS. The obverse shows a Bust of Liberty facing right, surrounded by the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on a scroll below. Miss Liberty wears a diadem inscribed LIBERTY, and her hair is tied in a bun. The reverse displays the denomination 50 CENTS centered in an oak and laurel wreath, with STANDARD SILVER above and the date 1870 below. The currently offered piece is fully struck with watery, modestly reflective fields and pleasing cameo contrast. There are a few minor handling marks on each side, and a planchet streak (as struck) extends across the bottom of the letters in SILVER, on the reverse, terminating near the left reverse star. Still a rare and highly desirable near-Gem, the only proof example of this variety to be graded by either NGC or PCGS. Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer (10/03).
    From The New Millennium Collection. (#61231) (PCGS# 61231)
