    1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar, PR65
    Judd-991, Struck in Aluminum

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-991, Pollock-1121, R.8, PR65 PCGS. Liberty wears a diadem and faces right. Her hair is tied up in a bun. The reverse features a wreath of oak and laurel with the date below and 50 CENTS inside. STANDARD SILVER arcs across the upper periphery. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Eye-catching contrast between the highly polished, mirrorlike fields and frosted devices is characteristic of aluminum patterns. A tick behind Liberty's head is the only apparent flaw. Brilliant surfaces are carefully preserved.
