    1859 Paquet-Designed Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-235, PR62

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-235, Pollock-284, R.5 PR62 PCGS. CAC. Paquet's obverse design features a left-facing Liberty, seated, supporting a fasces with her right hand and a shield with her left. Thirteen small stars surround the periphery with the date, 1859, in exergue. Arrows and olive branches lie at the base of the shield. The reverse is also by Paquet with a slightly disproportionate eagle, with wings spread, holding three slender arrows in its left claw and an olive sprig with its right talon. The "perfect" scroll is held in the eagle's beak and reads E PLURIBUS UNUM with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA occupying the upper periphery and HALF DOLLAR the lower. The vertical lines in the shield are in groups of four each, as opposed to three lines as found on the similar "broken ribbon" version of this pattern. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Each side is toned in varying shades with significant underlying patina. Housed in an old doily holder.
