    Finest Certified Judd-246 1859 French Head Half

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-246, Pollock-302, Low R.7, PR66 Brown NGC. Longacre's "French Head" of Liberty. She wears a wreath of oak and vine leaves on her head, while a ribbon inscribed LIBERTY curls around where her shoulder would normally reside. This reverse has a large 'sandwich board' eagle holding a ribbon in its beak. The arrows within the right (facing) claw have unusually long shafts. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. The "perfect ribbon" Pollock variant, which is also distinguished from P-304 by four lines (instead of three) in the semi-vertical shield lines. Pollock left a space for P-302 but apparently did not find an example of the Judd subvariety prior to the 1994 publication of his reference. An exquisitely struck specimen that is pedigreed by a tiny spot below Liberty's eye. The borders retain considerable crimson color, while the fields possess steel-blue hues. The finest of three examples of the pattern certified by NGC. PCGS has certified none above PR64 Red and Brown.(#11990) (NGC ID# 29CT, PCGS# 11990)
