    1859 Paquet Half Dollar in Silver
    Judd-251, PR64

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-251, Pollock-290, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. CAC. Both sides were designed by Anthony Paquet. The obverse shows a stiff figure of Liberty with right hand resting on a fasces, left hand on a shield. The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center and is surrounded by a Neoclassical wreath adapted to New World use, consisting of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat, and oak leaves. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. The reported population of Judd-251 half dollars is just five coins, according to the tenth and latest edition of United States Pattern Coins. Mostly brilliant centers cede to blushes of light toning around the borders. Contrast between the frosty agricultural wreath and the surrounding fields produces noticeable cameo contrast on the reverse. Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer. CAC: 1 in 64, 0 finer (10/21).
