    Paquet Designed Half Dollar of 1859--The Pollock Plate Coin

    1859 Half Dollar, Judd-247, Pollock-286, R.7, PR 60 Cleaned and Retoned. Both sides were designed by Anthony Paquet. The obverse shows his stiff figure of Liberty with right hand resting on a fasces, left hand on a shield. The reverse has HALF DOLLAR in the center and is surrounded by a wreath of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat, and oak leaves. This reverse was adopted the following year for the dime and half dime. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Dusky gray-golden toning over hairlined surfaces. Used as the plate coin in the Pollock reference on patterns. Identifiable by a spot at 9 o'clock on the reverse between the wreath and denticles, and by a wide V-shaped patch of die rust at the top of that side. (PCGS# 60247)
