    Lustrous Brown 1859 French Head
    Half Dollar, PR64, Judd-238

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-238, Pollock-294, R.5, PR64 Brown PCGS. The obverse shows Liberty facing 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 has an agricultural wreath around the denomination HALF DOLLAR. The wreath contains various products of the nation's farmers, including corn, wheat, cotton, tobacco, and sugar cane. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Despite the Brown designation, glimpses of lustrous mint red still peek through the prevailing darker color. A loupe reveals a single noticeable tick on each side, one on Liberty's cheek, one in the lower reverse field above the bow. Population: 9 in 64 Brown, 1 finer (3/12). (NGC ID# 29CJ, PCGS# 11968)
