    Spectacularly Toned 1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper
    Judd-989, PR65 Red and Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-989, Pollock-1118, R.7, PR65 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: H.W. Bass, Jr. Standard Silver design with Liberty facing right wearing a headband with a star, a scroll below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above. The reverse is similar to the one used in 1869 with 50 CENTS in the center and surrounded by a wreath of oak and laurel with 1870 below and STANDARD SILVER above. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is one of the most aesthetically desirable patterns we have seen in recent memory with deeply mirrored fields, excellent contrast, and vivid toning. Both sides have deep cherry color with gold, lilac, and blue toning. A small spot in the right obverse field confirms the pedigree of this piece.
    Ex: Julian Leidman (7/28/1972); Harry W. Bass, Jr. (Bowers and Merena, 5/1999), lot 1210. (PCGS# 71235)
