Description:
Ex-Bass 1859 Half Dollar Pattern, Judd-245
1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-245, Pollock-303, 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 a broken ribbon. Struck in silver with a reeded edge from a notably rusted reverse die. The centers are not fully struck, but otherwise an attractive piece with medium apricot and steel-blue colors. Assumedly, Pollock-301, which has a perfect ribbon and a rust-free reverse die, is the 'original' variety of Judd-245, while Pollock-303, which is struck from a lapped and rusted reverse die, is a mint-made restrike.
Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, Part I (Bowers and Merena, 5/1999), lot 1175, which realized $3,450. Purchased from Douglas Weaver on January 21, 1974.(#11988) (PCGS# 11988)
