Lovely French Head 1859 Half Dollar, Judd-2461859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-246, Pollock-302, R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Longacre's "French Head" of Liberty. She wears a wreath of oak and vine leaves on her head, while a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY curls around where her shoulder would normally reside. This reverse has a large 'sandwich board' eagle holding a perfect (unbroken) ribbon in its beak. The arrows within the right (facing) claw have unusually long shafts. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Not mentioned in Pollock because he had not found an example, but he left the number available. Saul Teichman lists two appearances of Pollock-302 on uspatterns.com. Golden-brown and steel-blue patina confirms the originality of this well struck and impressively preserved specimen. Population: 2 in 64, 0 finer (10/03).
From the Frank O. Fredericks Collection, Part III.(#11990) (PCGS# 11990)
