    1859 Longacre Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-241, PR65

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-241, Pollock-297, R.4, PR65 NGC. 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. Struck in both silver and copper, there are an estimated 50 silver pieces believed known and another 30 examples in copper. This is an (almost) all-brilliant piece with nicely reflective fields and no apparent surface problems.
