CAC. OGH. Obv:The same design that the Mint used to produce regular issue 1861 Liberty Seated half dollars. The point of the shield is over the right side of the first digit 1 in the date. Rev:Similar to the regular issue design, but with the addition of the motto GOD OUR TRUST on a scroll in the field above the eagle. This wonderfully original specimen exhibits vivid undertones of cobalt blue, salmon pink, golden-blue and champagne-apricot. Otherwise toned in blended golden-olive, copper-rose and sandy-brown, both sides also sport full striking detail and overall smooth surfaces. A small carbon deposit on the reverse within and around the letter O in DOL is a useful identifier. The "Date Right" variety of this type, copper impressions scarce with fewer than a dozen known per the uspatterns.comwebsite. Provenance: From the E. Horatio Morgan Collection. Earlier from Superior's Wes Rasmussen Collection sale, February 1998, lot 1972. PCGS Population: 3; with a single Proof-67 BN finer in this category. PCGS# 12102. NGC ID: 29DL.
