1859 Judd-239 Half Dollar, PR61
So-Called 'French Head' Obverse

1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-239, Pollock-295, R.4, PR61 NGC. The so-called "French Head" design for the half dollar that features a bust of Liberty facing right, draped with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY with a wide wreath of oak and vine on her head. The reverse has 1/2 DOLLAR in the center and is surrounded by a wreath of cotton, tobacco, corn, sugar cane, wheat, and oak. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Despite the modest numerical grade, this is a very attractive pattern half dollar and should be a pleasant addition to any collection. Numerous tiny abrasions and hairline scratches are hidden within the toning on each side. The centers are lighter silver and ivory with rose, gold, lilac, and iridescent toning nearer the borders. A delightful presentation. (PCGS# 11972)
