Description:
Important 1859 Judd-240 Pattern Half Dollar Variant
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-240b, Pollock-296, Unique, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Unique with this edge type. On the obverse Liberty faces 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 1/2 DOLLAR. The wreath contains various products of the nation's farmers, including corn, wheat, cotton, tobacco, and sugar cane. Struck in copper with a plain edge. Pleasing olive, tan, and gold surfaces with light reflectivity in the fields on both sides.
This piece was formerly lot 1168 in the sale of the Harry Bass Collection, a coin that was described as having "the letter H counterstamped 16 times" in the edge. While the edge feature is not visible due to the PCGS holder, this cataloger recalls examination of the edge prior to its certification in 1999, and the edge device is crisp and clear, being punched into the edge before the piece was struck.
Ex: Garrett Collection (Stack's, 3/1976), lot 622; Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1999), lot 1168. (PCGS# 11975)
