1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-241, Pollock-297, R.4, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. This half dollar design is often called the "French Head of Liberty." The letters in LIBERTY are ribbed, unusual within the pattern series. The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center bounded by a cereal wreath, similar to that of the issued 1860 half dime and dime. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Although usually attributed to James Longacre, Saul Teichman suggests Anthony Paquet may have been responsible for the design. He also notes than more than 50 examples of this type are known. This Premium Gem is richly toned primarily in ice-blue patina with mint-green, orange, and yellow-gold color around the rims. Eye appeal is great.
