1870 Pattern Half Dollar, Standard Silver, plain edge. Judd-964, P-1060, Rarity-7. . J-964. PCGS graded Proof 64. Choice antique gray toning on both sides. The devices are crisp and complete in their detail, and the surfaces show few signs of handling or hairlines. PCGS has only graded 3 examples of this pattern, this is the finest seen, and there are two in lower grades. An undervalued rarity that has proven to be far more difficult to locate than Judd's Rarity-6 rating, Pollock changed it to Rarity-7, and it may be at the high end of that rating. The die alignment is about 170 degrees, so this may be the Stack's March 1973 : lot 356 coin as noted in Pollock. An extremely rare coin that is possibly the very finest known as NGC hasn't graded any of this pattern variety.
Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,500.

Realized $2,300
