    Copper PR50 1859 Half Dollar
    Judd-238, Longacre Design

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-238, Pollock-294, R.5, PR50 NGC. The Longacre "French Head" of Liberty faces right with laurel and vine in her hair. A ribbon below her bust is inscribed LIBERTY, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, and the date below. The reverse resembles the issued 1860 Seated dime though in larger format, and the denomination is changed to HALF DOLLAR. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The present specimen circulated briefly despite its alloy, but is free from detrimental marks. Rose-red and sea-green shades emerge beneath a light.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29CJ, PCGS# 11968)
