    Rarely Offered 1871 Standard Silver Half, Judd-1105

    1871 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-1105, Pollock-1241, R.7, PR64 NGC. A seated representation of Liberty faces right on the obverse. She wears an Indian headdress and supports a liberty pole with her right hand. Her left hand rests on a globe with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY. The date 1871 is below. On the reverse, the denomination 50 CENTS is situated within a wreath of cotton and corn with STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Only three examples of this variety have been certified by NGC and PCGS, all at the PR64 grade level (5/01). This is the first of these coins that we have handled in recent memory, and it is an attractively toned near-Gem. The otherwise brilliant surfaces exhibit bright orange-russet and electric-blue peripheral highlights that are most extensive on the obverse. Powerfully impressed with no readily evident hairlines. (NGC ID# 2A47, PCGS# 61364)
