Uniface Device Punch, J-A1859-7, MS61
(1859) T$1 Uniface Device Punch J-A1859-7, Pollock-3227, MS61
PCGS. This uniface device punch die trial is struck in white
metal and has a plain edge. The device punch is similar to the
so-called French Liberty Head, as seen on the 1859 half dollar
patterns Judd-237 through Judd-246, and the Assay Commission Medals
of 1860 to 1862. It is larger in scale, suitable for silver dollar
diameter, and the style of the portrait also differs. The chin juts
slightly, and hair extends behind the neck in a more unruly
fashion. The ear is partly covered. The most important difference
from Judd-237 is the ribbon, which is plain on the present piece,
but bears LIBERTY on the half dollar patterns.
Similar to the 'French Head of Liberty'
Undated, Circa 1859
This silver-gray piece has a well struck portrait. A cluster of grade-limiting abrasions is noted on the field near 3 o'clock, and the blank reverse has distributed subdued marks. Pollock lists three known specimens, and this number of survivors is echoed by the 10th Edition of Judd.
