Description:
1859 Judd-245 Half Dollar in PR64
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-245, Pollock-301, R.7, 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 overlays 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. Uniform brilliance is noted beneath rich charcoal toning. Select angles reveal lilac tinged undertones and scattered die polish lines (as produced) in the fields, but we can find no mentionable post-production distractions. (PCGS# 11988)
