Description:
Paquet Design, Liberty Seated Silver Half Dollar Proof Pattern
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-235, Pollock-284, R.5, PR61 NGC. Anthony Paquet's design for the Seated Liberty series, here in the half dollar format. Liberty is seen seated in a stiff pose, left hand resting on an upright shield, right hand atop a fasces. The reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings, a scroll inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM in its beak, and the usual statutory legends above and below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The eagle's ribbon is broken (as made), which corresponds to Pollock-284 and not the unbroken ribbon variant, Pollock-282. Richly toned with deep charcoal-brown color. The strike is sharp throughout, and the dies are rotated slightly counter-clockwise. The surfaces are mildly reflective and seem entirely unmarked. (#11960) (PCGS# 11960)
