    1871 Indian Princess Half in Silver
    Judd-1114, PR67+ Cameo
    Finest of Six Pieces Known

    1871 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1114, Pollock-1250, High R.7, PR67+ Cameo 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 pieces are believed known in silver. This is the finest. An MS67 also shows on the NGC Census Report, but it is this same coin (ex: Lemus) before it crossed over to a PCGS holder. Much brilliance remains in the interiors while surrounded by light golden-rose and blue peripheral color. Strong contrast is seen between the mirrored fields and frosted devices.
    Ex: New England Museum Properties (Stack's, 10/1998), lot 622; Lemus / Queller Family Collection (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1806, where it sold for $40,250.
