Who says Patterns are overpriced??? Look at this piece-its really price about the same as a nice 1870 PR 50C would cost!
This coin is a R-7 with just 4-12 minted. It is a Longacre Half Pattern test design struck in copper.
Both sides display wonderful deep, crystal clear, super clean, and highly reflective mirrors. The obverse has deeper shades of coppery reddish chocolate brown while the reverse is a chocolate blue gold. We believe its colored this way simply because of how it was sitting for all these years. Miss Liberty and every detail is pinpoint sharp in strike and has light frost. The eye appeal is like the design: awesome!
PCGS 2, NGC 0, CAC 1. The other coin last sold in auction in 2008 Heritage (it was non CAC) for $8,050.00. You can even find a regular PR66 Half for this price today!
