Description:
Popular 'French Head' 1859 Half Dollar
Judd-238, PR62 Brown
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-238, Pollock-294, R.5, PR62 Brown PCGS. The so-called "French Head" of Liberty, which faces right, draped with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY and a wide wreath of oak and vine on her head. The reverse has HALF DOLLAR in the center, surrounded by a wreath of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat, and oak. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. More than 30 pieces are believed extant of this popular pattern. Even, deep brown color is seen over each side. A couple of shallow field scrapes on the reverse are the primary explanation for the PR62 grade. (PCGS# 11968)
