    1870 Standard Silver Half in Aluminum
    Judd-985, PR67 Deep Cameo
    The Finest Known

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-985, Pollock-1106, R.8, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse features a diademed bust of Liberty facing right, her hair tied in a bun. The reverse has the denomination 50 CENTS in an oak and laurel wreath with STANDARD SILVER above and the date 1870 below. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. This popular design was struck in silver, copper, and aluminum. All are very scarce to rare. For some reason we don't quite understand there seem to be several problem pieces extant of this particular Judd number. Either that, or we have handled the same ones several times. This is a spectacular deeply mirrored example that displays heavily frosted devices. Brilliant throughout.
