Description:
Always-Popular 'French Head' 1859 Half Dollar in Copper
Judd-240, PR64 Brown
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-240, Pollock-296, R.5, PR64 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. More than 30 examples of this design are believed to exist in copper. Even brown patina covers both sides of this sharply defined example. A couple of small carbon spots on the obverse explain the less-than-Gem grade. (PCGS# 11974)
