1838 Pattern Half Dollar. Silver, Reeded Edge. Judd-72. Pollock-75 Rarity 2. NGC graded Proof 64. CAC Approved. A hint of tone around the edges otherwise white. The William Kneass design completed by Christian Gobrecht after Kneass's stroke. Sharp in the usual areas but also showing diminished design detail in the center (a design challenge that failed to be overcome in this unadopted design). Very choice surfaces with natural light color obtained over decades of careful storage, no doubt in some long-ago collector's coin cabinet. Pop 4; 6 finer, 5 in 65, 1 in 66 (PCGS # 11282) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 6,000.

 
Realized $6,325
