    Paquet Design, Liberty Seated Silver Half Dollar Proof Pattern

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-235, Pollock-284, R.5, PR61 NGC. Anthony Paquet's design for the Seated Liberty series, here in the half dollar format. Liberty is seen seated in a stiff pose, left hand resting on an upright shield, right hand atop a fasces. The reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings, a scroll inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM in its beak, and the usual statutory legends above and below. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The eagle's ribbon is broken (as made), which corresponds to Pollock-284 and not the unbroken ribbon variant, Pollock-282. Richly toned with deep charcoal-brown color. The strike is sharp throughout, and the dies are rotated slightly counter-clockwise. The surfaces are mildly reflective and seem entirely unmarked. (#11960) (NGC ID# 29CE, PCGS# 11960)

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
