    1870 Standard Silver Half Dollar in Aluminum
    Judd-931, PR65 Deep Cameo

    1870 50C Standard Silver Half Dollar, Judd-931, Pollock-1037, High R.7, PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. William Barber's Seated Liberty design, interesting for its placement of the shield behind her legs. The reverse displays an agricultural wreath more suitable for a lower denomination, along with the legends STANDARD and 50 CENTS. An inappropriate pairing of dies, since UNITED STATES OF AMERICA does not appear on either side. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Saul Teichman lists three or four known examples of Judd-931. Not a speck of color appears on either side of this brilliant, fully frosted Gem. Deep Cameo contrast is eye-catching.
