    1870 Regular Dies Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-993, PR65+ Red and Brown

    1870 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-993, Pollock-1123, High R.7, PR65+ Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse and reverse dies are both the designs for regular-issue half dollars of 1870. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Although these could be considered die trials for a regular issue, there is little doubt that, given the plethora of different die designs and combinations, plain and reeded edges, strikes in copper, aluminum, and silver -- a cornucopia of variations -- that these patterns were offered in sets to collectors or their providers. This coin displays splendid preservation on surfaces that are still largely reddish-orange with a couple of splashes of lilac patina in the fields. This is the sole Gem proof example of this copper striking in any color designation at PCGS (8/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 71239)
