    Description

    1935 Hudson Sesquicentennial Half, PR67
    Uniface Obverse Hub Trial, J-A1935-2
    Believed Unique in Copper

    1935 50c Hudson Half Dollar Hub Trial, Judd-A1935-2, R.8, PR67 NGC. A wonderful Superb Gem specimen of the obverse hub trial for the 1935 Hudson, New York Sesquicentennial half dollar. Three obverse hub trials of this issue are known to numismatists today, classified as J-A1935-2 in the Judd pattern reference. The hub trials were struck on planchets with different composition and sizes. While two of the known trial pieces were struck on copper-plated silver planchets, apparently the third example (the coin offered here) was struck on an oversized copper planchet. The first auction appearance of this hub trial was probably in lot 2047 of the ANA Convention Auction (Abe Kosoff, 8/1958):

    "Hub impression (incused) of the obverse of the Hudson Sesqui-Centennial half dollar, 1935. Struck in copper, uniface, on a large planchet. Probably unique."



    Don Taxay indicated that the two copper-plated examples that were not in the 1958 ANA sale were once owned by Steven Nagy.

    The present coin is a stunning Superb Gem, with sharply detailed design elements in mirror image of the way they appear on the obverse of the regular-issue coin. The original red surfaces are free of mentionable distractions and eye appeal is terrific. This lot represents a rare opportunity to acquire this historic issue, which has only been offered publicly twice before. (A copper-plated companion piece of this trial is offered in another lot in this sale).
    From our FUN Signature (1/2015), lot 4510.
