Description

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-241, Pollock-297, R.4, PR62 PCGS. The Longacre Liberty Head design for the half dollar, also known as "French Head of Liberty," paired with a reverse that has 50 CENTS surrounded by a cereal wreath. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. One of several "French Head" patterns in this sale, this piece was obviously cleaned at one time and the underlying surfaces are very bright. However, the overlay of toning is quite attractive, being deep golden and blue-green.
    From the Frank O. Fredericks Collection, Part III.(#11978) (NGC ID# 29CM, PCGS# 11978)
