    1859 Longacre Half Dollar, PR63
    Judd-241, 'French Head'

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-241, Pollock-297, R.4, PR63 NGC. The Longacre "French Head of Liberty" design for the half dollar. The reverse displays 50 CENTS encompassed by a cereal wreath that is very similar to that introduced on the issued 1860 Seated dime, although much larger in scale. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This example is boldly rendered, with broad rims and needle-sharp detail. The fields show faint die striae which effectively mask a few light, grade-limiting hairlines. Reflectivity is abundant, and each side displays a hint of golden toning.

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