    1859 Half Dollar Pattern, PR61
    Judd-241, 'French Head of Liberty'

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-241, Pollock-297, R.4, PR61 PCGS. The Longacre design for the half dollar, often called the "French Head of Liberty." The letters in LIBERTY are ribbed, unusual within the pattern series. The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center bounded by a cereal wreath, similar to that of the issued 1860 half dime and dime. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This sharply struck specimen is pearl-white save for light gray toning near OF AMERICA. The luster is moderately subdued, and no marks are remotely consequential.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29CM, PCGS# 11978)
