Near-Mint 1838-C Repunched 5 Half Eagle

1838-C $5 AU58 NGC. Ex: Elrod. Variety 1-B. Repunched 5. Two die varieties of the 1838-C half eagles are known, with a normal or repunched 5. The quickest attribution diagnostic is the relationship between the U and adjacent leaves. Variety 1-A, the Normal 5, has two leaves below and separated from the U. Variety 1-B, the Repunched 5, has divergent leaves with the outer leaf actually touching (or virtually so) the D. Variety 1-B is scarcer than 1-A.
Pleasing light yellow surfaces with considerable luster on both sides. The surfaces are lightly marked as usual. A hint of green coloration and a trace of lilac toning is evident on each side. The reverse has a dramatic diagonal bisecting crack from 2:30 to 7:30, as often found, although it appears to be extremely late on this piece, with large chips along the crack. It looks as if this die was ready to fall apart.
Ex: Elrod Collection; Ohio Specialist; Columbia Collection (Bowers and Merena, 11/1998), lot 2032.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25S5, PCGS# 8177)
