Description:
Lightly Circulated 1838-D Half Eagle, AU53
Uniformly Well-Struck
1838-D $5 AU53 PCGS. McCloskey 1-A, R.3. Besides being a key to the Classic Head half eagle series, the 1838-D and its sibling the 1838-C are the only Obverse Mintmark coins of the Classic Head type -- an 1838-C quarter eagle was also issued -- mementos of the important year in which the United States went from one mint to four, opening its first branches in Dahlonega, Georgia; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Charlotte, North Carolina. (New Orleans, however, would strike its first half eagles only some two years later, in 1840.)
The lemon-yellow surfaces of this lightly circulated piece display a slight trace of reddish patina on each side, and the fields still retain a modest amount of prooflikeness. The surfaces are uniformly well struck, but there is just the slightest trace of either softness or high-point friction on the hair curls and stars, as well as the eagle's plumage. One diagonal mark appears before Liberty's face, along with a small cluster below the eagle's right (facing) wing. Population: 20 in 53, 40 finer (9/12).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25S6, PCGS# 8178)
