    1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper
    Judd-990, PR66+ Red and Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-990, Pollock-1119, High R.7, PR66+ Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. 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 is surrounded by a wreath of oak and laurel with 1870 below and STANDARD SILVER above. These were sold with the other denominations for $15. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This is a splendid copper pattern. The fields are brightly reflective and there is noticeable frosted contrast against the devices. Light yellow-orange color is seen over the reverse, and while the reverse has the same color over two-thirds of that side the left third is a deeper cherry-red and pale brown color. Exceptional quality.
