    1872 Seated Half in Copper
    Judd-1203, PR64+ Brown

    1872 50C Seated Half Dollar, Judd-1203, Pollock-1343, High R.7, PR64+ Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Judd-1203 is traditionally described as a dies trial piece, but the reason it exists is that it was made for a few complete denomination 1872 proof sets struck in copper. The edge is reeded. Judd-1203 is very rare. The (9/20) PCGS Population shows only three pieces in all grades. The NGC Census reports a single example (9/20). The present crisply struck example displays rich rose-red and olive-green toning. The obverse has a few narrow parallel alloy streaks, as produced. No detractions are readily evident.
