    1874 Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-1361, PR66 Red
    Only Two Pieces Known

    1874 50C Half Dollar, Judd-1361, Pollock-1506, R.8, PR66 Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Formerly termed a die trials piece, but undoubtedly these pieces were struck deliberately for collectors as part of sets. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Only two pieces are known in copper, and another two in aluminum. Of the two known copper examples this is by far the nicer of the two. The second piece grades PR63 Red and Brown. The surfaces are bright with undimmed copper mint luster. The fields are deeply reflective. A few small spots are seen on the obverse.
    Ex: Lenox Lohr; Empire Review #19; later to RENROB; Southern Collection.
