    1871 Standard Silver Half in Aluminum
    Judd-1113, PR67 Deep Cameo
    Only Two Examples Known

    1871 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-1113, Pollock-1249, R.8, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Weight: 51.6 grains. Diameter: 1.199 inches. Die alignment: 180 degrees. The obverse features Longacre's "Indian Princess" design, with a seated Liberty facing left, wearing a headdress and supporting a Liberty Cap pole in her right hand. Her left hand rests on a globe, with LIBERTY inscribed and two conjoined flags behind. The date (1871) is below. The reverse shows the denomination inside a wreath of cotton and corn, with STANDARD above. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. The design was also struck in silver (Judd-1111) and copper (Judd-1112). USPatterns.com has traced only two examples of Judd-1113.

    This spectacular Superb Gem proof exhibits sharply detailed frosty design elements that contrast profoundly with the deeply mirrored fields to create an intense cameo effect. The mostly brilliant surfaces are impeccably preserved and display a few subtle hints of lavender patina. The eye appeal is terrific.
