Description

Charming 1838-C Half Eagle, VF30

1838-C $5 VF30 PCGS. Variety 1-A. A popular one-year type coin, the 1838-C is the only half eagle from the Charlotte Mint in the Classic Head series. It carries the additional distinction of having the lowest mintage of the series, with only 17,179 pieces struck. Both varieties (1-A and 1-B) feature the same obverse, but this reverse lacks a repunched 5 in the denomination. Charming green-orange patina drapes both sides, which show scattered abrasions, none worthy of individual mention. The details are somewhat soft, as typically seen for the issue. (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25S5, PCGS# 8177)
