1897 saw the landmark case of Allgeyer v. Louisiana. In the case, the Supreme Court ruled that liberty, in the Fourteenth Amendment, referred to only economic liberty. The results of the case were that the defendant, Allgeyer & Co., was fine $1,000 for violating the shipping contract it had with the State of Louisiana. Could this 1897 half dollar, minted in Louisiana, have been part of the restitution paid by Allgeyer & Co.?
