Description:
Impressive 1838-D Half Eagle, AU50
1838-D $5 AU50 NGC. McCloskey 1-A, R.3, the only known dies. The 1838-D is the only Classic Head half eagle struck in Dahlonega, and it is an extremely important type coin for that reason. The mintage of 20,583 coins was sufficient to yield enough survivors today that any collector who desires one can acquire an example, as long as grade is no concern. Those who desire a high quality example may have a lengthy search. This piece provides a happy medium between the two groups of collectors, high enough grade to show all of the important details, but not too high to price it above most numismatic budgets. It is sharply detailed with lustrous green-gold surfaces and a few abrasions on each side. (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25S6, PCGS# 8178)
