    1859 Paquet Half Dollar in Copper
    Judd-236, PR64 Brown

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-236, Pollock-285, R.5, PR64 Brown NGC. Anthony Paquet's design offers a seated Liberty facing left. She supports a fasces with her right hand and balances a shield in her left. The reverse features a large eagle with an olive branch and lengthy arrows in the claws. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This Pollock variant is the "Broken Ribbon" reverse. Rather than just a die lapping curiosity, this variant is actually from a slightly different reverse die that is characterized not only by the broken ribbon, but also by three lines in the shield (rather than four) and split wingtips. The brown-gray surfaces show significant underlying iridescence on the obverse, while the reverse retains slight traces of original red.
