The Longacre design for the half dollar that features a bust of Liberty facing right, draped with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY and a wide wreath of oak and vine on her head. The reverse depicts a cereal wreath within which is the denomination 1/2 DOLLAR. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Lightly hairlined, the surfaces are predominantly silver-gray in appearance. Mottled orange-russet iridescence is, however, noted around the peripheries, particularly on the reverse. A suitably reflective example. (PCGS# 11972)
