    1859 Paquet Seated Liberty Half
    Judd-249, PR61

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-249, Pollock-288, High R.7, PR61 NGC. The Paquet Liberty Seated with fasces obverse. A homely, disproportionate Liberty is seated on a rock, shield at her lowered right (facing) hand and holding the top of a fasces in her left hand. An olive branch and three arrowheads lie -- curiously so -- under the shield. Thirteen stars encircle the rim. On the reverse, a cereal wreath encloses a large fraction 1/2 on two lines, with DOLLAR on a third line beneath. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This piece is lightly hairlined, accounting for the grade, with brilliant silver surfaces and a trace of peripheral iridescence. Less than half a dozen are known.
    Ex: Hans M.F. Schulman; M.H. Bolender, 10/1956; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1407.
