Description

1859 Pattern Half Dollar, PR65 Brown
The Famous 'French Head' of Liberty, Judd-240

1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-240, Pollock-296, R.5, PR65 Brown NGC. 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. The brown surfaces are closer to turquoise than brown, but brown can be seen around the devices. The fields are deeply mirrored and there are no obvious or mentionable contact marks. (NGC ID# 29CK, PCGS# 11974)
