Description

Longacre's 1859 'French Head' Half Dollar
Judd-237, PR62

1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-237, Pollock-293, R.4, PR62 PCGS. Same design and metallic composition as the piece above. This frequently seen pattern is known in silver, copper, and even white metal splashers. It is difficult to imagine that this design was seriously contemplated for coinage, but the numbers struck argue that perhaps it was. This example is almost completely brilliant with nicely reflective fields. The reverse displays significant contrast, but little of this effect is seen on the obverse. Lightly hairlined. (NGC ID# 29CH, PCGS# 11966)
