Description

1859 Judd-242 Half Dollar Pattern, Lower Grade Proof

1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-242, Pollock-298, R.5--Obverse Damage--NCS. Proof. The familiar "French Head of Liberty" design, credited to Paquet because of his preference for narrow letters in the legends. The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center, and is surrounded by a large wreath similar to that later introduced on the 1860 dime. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The "Obverse Damage" mentioned on the insert is limited to several shallow marks or planchet depressions on the neck of Liberty. Deep brown patina subdues the proof fields and the obverse devices are surrounded with even deeper, almost charcoal-colored patina. While no numeric designation is indicated, this piece would be the equivalent of a PR60. (PCGS# 11981)
