Description:
1859 'French Head' Half Dollar in Copper
Judd-238, PR65 Brown, With Traces of Red
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-238, Pollock-294, R.5, PR65 Brown NGC. The obverse shows Liberty facing right with laurel and vine in her hair. A ribbon below the bust is inscribed LIBERTY, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, and the date below. The reverse has an agricultural wreath around the denomination HALF DOLLAR. The wreath contains various products of the nation's farmers, including corn, wheat, cotton, tobacco, and sugar cane. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This is the so-called "French Head" of Liberty. More than 30 pieces are believed to exist today in copper. While designated as Brown, the obverse devices show a significant amount of original red. A couple of contact marks can be made out with magnification but do not detract from the Gem appearance of this piece.
