    1859 "French Head" Pattern Half Dollar, Judd-238, PR62 Brown PCGS

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-238, Pollock-294, R.5, PR62 Brown PCGS. The Longacre (or is it Paquet) design for the half dollar that features the so-called "French head," that is, a bust of Liberty facing right, draped with a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY with a wide wreath of oak and vine on her head. The reverse has HALF DOLLAR in the center and is surrounded by a wreath of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat, and oak. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The olive patina shows slight mottling over Liberty's face, and there is slightly deeper color surrounding the peripheral devices, especially on the obverse. Encapsulated in a green label holder. (NGC ID# 29CJ, PCGS# 11968)
