    1859 Paquet Half Dollar Pattern, Double Struck, Judd-251

    1859 P50C Half Dollar, Judd-251, Pollock-290, R.7--Obverse Double Struck--ANACS. Proof, Net PR50. Judd Plate Coin. 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 wreath of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat, and oak leaves. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. These are believed to be restrikes struck in the mid 1860s to early 1870s as there is evidence of extensive die rust on the reverse. Both sides are brilliant from cleaning with a few small contact marks. While labeled as the Judd plate coin, the double striking on the obverse has obliterated much of the head of Liberty, and this coin simply does not match the coin used in the Judd reference.
    From the Frank O. Fredericks Collection.
