Longacre designs featuring a bust of Liberty, nicely coiffed facing right, with LIBERTY on a snaking ribbon below the bust, date 1859 at bottom. The reverse wreath is one of Longacres principal designs featuring on Seated Liberty and Barber Dime coinage. Within, the denomination HALF DOLLAR. Bold, sharp rims and denticles. Natural milky gray and old-silver shaded toning. A very sharp, choice example of this moderately scarce Type. Estimated Value $1,800 - 1,900

Ex Lemus Collection.
