    Richly Toned Select 1870 Standard Silver Half, Judd-988

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-988, Pollock-1117, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. The obverse features a bust of Liberty facing right. She wears a headband inscribed LIBERTY, which is decorated in the center with a star. Her hair is tied up in a bun. IN GOD WE TRUST is beneath within a scroll, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is centered above her. The reverse exhibits a wreath of cotton and corn, with 50 CENTS crowded inside the wreath. STANDARD SILVER is centered above the wreath, and 1870 is beneath the wreath. Struck in silver with a plain edge. (The new Judd book incorrectly denotes this Judd-988 as a copper striking.) Mauve and apricot colors invigorate this well struck and seemingly conservatively graded specimen. The dies are rotated approximately 15 degrees counterclockwise.
    Ex: February Long Beach Sale (Heritage, 2/1990), lot 1799, which realized $1,650.
    From the Frank O. Fredericks Collection, Part III.(#61234) (NGC ID# 29ZC, PCGS# 61234)
