    1871 Indian Princess Half in Silver
    Judd-1114, PR63

    1871 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1114, Pollock-1250, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Longacre's Seated Liberty faces left, wearing an Indian Princess headdress and a flowing robe. Her left hand rests atop a globe wrapped with a scroll bearing the word LIBERTY in raised letters, while holding a spear and Liberty cap in her right hand. Two flags -- one bearing 13 stars -- are in the background, with the date 1871 in the exergue. Thirteen stars fill the periphery. The reverse is from the regular half dollar dies for the year. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. About a half dozen examples are known in silver and few more are extant in copper. This is an attractive piece whose obverse displays lightly speckled golden-rose toning with a significant presence of brilliance still evident. The reverse is mostly brilliant with just a dash of the same coloration seen on the obverse.
