    1859 Longacre Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-241, Lightly Toned PR62

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-241, Pollock-297, R.4, PR62 PCGS. The Longacre Liberty Head 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. The fields on each side are shallowly mirrored, yet striations are clearly present in an attempt by the Mint to produce a brightly mirrored product. Only slight golden toning is visible on each side.

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