Description:
Deeply Toned 1859 Half Dollar
PR64 Brown, Judd-242
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-242, Pollock-298, R.5, PR64 Brown NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. Referred to as Longacre's "French Liberty Head" design. A Romanesque bust of Liberty faces right, with a crown of intertwined oak and vine leaves. Around her neck is a scroll inscribed with the word LIBERTY. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA fills the peripheral fields with the date below. An ornate wreath of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat, and oak leaves dominates the reverse, with 50 CENTS enclosed in two lines. Struck in copper with a reeded edge.
The USPatterns.com website opines that more than 30 Judd-242 patterns are believed extant in all grades. With approximately 20 auction appearances during the past 15 years and a combined NGC and PCGS population of 35 pieces (3/09), the USPatterns.com estimate appears to be accurate. Bold chestnut coloration adorns this well struck near-Gem proof pattern. Areas of darker toning are observed on both sides, although more so in the right obverse field.
From The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Three. (PCGS# 11980)
