1859 Pattern Half Dollar. Silver, reeded edge. Judd-241. Pollock-297, Rarity-4. PCGS graded Proof 65. A stunning coin that boasts rich deep blue toning throughout with an arc of lighter sunset colors on the left side of the obverse and reverse. Boldly struck by the dies, with no a whisper of weakness to be found. We recommend close examination of the surfaces because there are faint roller lines on in the fields, these are not hairlines, but were caused when the planchets were being rolled and drawn through the Mint's huge mills. The surfaces are truly immaculate, without spot, trial or tribulation to be found. Thus, PCGS awarded this coin a full gem grade, PR-65, and one of just 2 coins graded this high of Judd-241. NGC has graded 4 as high as PF-65, also with none graded higher. If you demand the finest, and love toned coins, then here is a worthy coin to acquire (PCGS # 11978) .
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Hollinbeck Stamp & Coin Company as lot #1550 from a sale circa 1944-46.

Realized $3,853
