    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-242, Pollock-298, R.5, PR66 Red and Brown NGC. The familiar "French Head of Liberty" design, credited to Anthony Paquet because of his preference toward narrow letters in the legends. The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center, and is surrounded by a large wreath similar to that later introduced on the 1860 dime. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Struck from a heavily striated planchet. Each side shows significant mint red, the obverse 60-70% and the reverse 50%. A few small specks of carbon are seen on each side. (NGC ID# 29CN, PCGS# 11981)
