    1870 Aluminum Standard Silver Half
    Judd-986, PR66 Cameo
    Exceptional Contrast

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-986, Pollock-1107, High R.7, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Denali Collection. Liberty faces right and wears a diadem inscribed LIBERTY. Ex: Denali Collection. Her hair is tied up in a bun. IN GOD WE TRUST is below within a scroll, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA completes the obverse legend. The reverse features a wreath of oak and laurel leaves, with 50 CENTS crowded inside and the date below. STANDARD SILVER frames the wreath. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. This obverse/reverse design combination was struck in silver, copper, aluminum, and a single white metal piece. All are rare with fewer than a half-dozen examples confirmed. The surfaces of this piece exhibit strong field-to-device contrast on each side. There are no signs of oxidation, and few irregularities are noted. A squiggly lint mark occurs between the D and S in UNITED and STATES, and a small patch of planchet porosity is noted above the top right wreath end.
    Ex: Chicago Signature (Heritage, 8/2011), lot 7737.
