    1859 'French Head' of Liberty Half Dollar
    Judd-239, PR63

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-239, Pollock-295, R.4, PR63 NGC. CAC. Longacre's "French Head" design for the half dollar that features 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 features the wreath of the issued 1860 Seated dime, though larger in scale commensurate with the diameter. The denomination is expressed as 1/2 DOLLAR within the wreath. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The proof mirrors are bright and especially evident on the lighter toned obverse, but the reverse is several shades deeper in color and tends to subdue the mirrored flash.
    From The Virginia Cabinet.
