    1863 With Motto Half in Silver
    Judd-340, PR64+ Deep Cameo

    1863 50C Half Dollar, Judd-340, Pollock-412, Low R.6, PR64+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC.
    Ex: Eliasberg-Simpson. Virtually identical to the adopted design with the motto GOD OUR TRUST set directly into the upper reverse field without a banner or scroll. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. About two dozen examples are known today. The design was also struck in copper (Judd-341). The fields are deeply reflective and the devices thickly frosted, the combination producing the profound cameo effect seen here. Fully struck in all areas.
    Ex: Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 259.
