Rare Longacre/Paquet Mule Half Dollar Pattern, Judd-2451859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-245, Pollock-301, R.7, PR65 NGC. The Longacre design from the Judd-237 is repeated on the obverse on this piece. However, the reverse was designed by Anthony Paquet and features a spread eagle design with the ribbon in its beak "perfect," that is, not incomplete like some are found (Pollock-303, 304). Struck in silver with a reeded edge. It appears this is the first time in at least ten years that we have handled this rare pattern. A solid Gem, the fields are deeply mirrored and each side has rich rose-golden toning with cobalt-blue peripheries.
From the Hans Poetsch Collection. (PCGS# 11988)
