Description & Analysis

Judd-77, Pollock-85, High R.7.

Design. Obverse: Liberty seated on a rock with shield and pole. A scroll draped across the shield has the inscription LIBERTY in incuse letters. Thirteen stars around and the date below. Reverse: Eagle with wings spread holding an olive branch and four arrows. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around and the denomination HALF DOLLAR below. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary. All examples seen of this extremely rare pattern show indications of extensive die rust. Judd-77 is a restrike issue produced for sale to collectors in the 1870s. An early auction appearance was in the Parmelee Collection (New York Coin & Stamp, 6/1890), lot 34. The preceding lot in that sale offered a specimen of Judd-76, from the same dies struck in silver. The issue was unlisted in Adams-Woodin and was not displayed in the 1914 ANS Exhibition. USPatterns.com states that four pieces are known to collectors today.
