    Red and Brown PR66 Judd-240 1859 Half Dollar Pattern

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-240, Pollock-296, R.5, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. On the obverse Liberty faces right with laurel and vine in her hair. A ribbon below the bust is inscribed LIBERTY, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around, and the date below. The reverse has an agricultural wreath around the denomination 1/2 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. Noted pattern expert, Saul Teichman, questions whether this design was done by Longacre or Paquet, as the 1859 half dollar patterns used Paquet's punches in the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Probably more than 30 pieces exist today in copper of this obverse/reverse die pairing. Each side shows a significant presence of blazing orange-red mint luster with irregular light blue patina around the peripheries. A splendid, high grade example that has no noticeable contact marks.
