Description:
Pleasing 1859 French Head Half
Judd-240, PR62 Brown
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-240, Pollock-296, R.5, PR62 Brown PCGS. The so-called "French Head" design, paired with a larger scale version of the dime "cereal wreath" reverse. Tall letters in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are consistent with Paquet's style, although the portrait is attributed to Longacre. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. While deep mahogany and walnut tones prevail on this lightly hairlined specimen, a degree of faded reddish-orange is also present near the rims. (PCGS# 11974)
