Description:
'French Head' 1859 Pattern Half
Judd-245, PR64
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-245, Pollock-301, Low R.6, PR64 PCGS. The obverse features a bust of Liberty facing right with a wreath of oak and vine leaves adorning her head. The word LIBERTY is inscribed on a ribbon that overlies Liberty's shoulder. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is around the periphery, the date 1859 is below. The reverse displays a spread eagle design with the ribbon in its beak "perfect," that is, not incomplete like found on examples of some varieties (Pollock-303 and 304, for example). Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Considerable brilliance is noted beneath light gray-blue toning. Select angles reveal reddish tinged undertones and scattered die polish lines (as produced) in the fields, but we can find no mentionable post-production distractions. (PCGS# 11988)
