    1870 Standard Silver Half in Copper
    Judd-959, PR66 Red and Brown

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half, Judd-959, Pollock-1110, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC. A bust of Liberty faces right. She wears a headband decorated with a star and inscribed LIBERTY. Her hair is tied up in a bun. IN GOD WE TRUST is emblazoned on a scroll below, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA surrounds the portrait. The reverse has the familiar wreath of corn and cotton, with 50/CENTS/1870 centered therein. STANDARD crowns the wreath. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Gold and peach hues invigorate this highly attractive Premium Gem. A small spot east of the second T in TRUST is the only identifier. The centers have a hint of striking weakness, usual for this comparatively high relief design. Population: 3 in 66 (1 in 66+) Red and Brown, 0 finer. CAC: 1 in 66, 0 finer (3/21).
