The significant mintage of this single variety places it as the most common early half eagle, with many Mint State pieces still in existence. However, nearly all of those that survive are in lower Mint State grades. According to Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth, the average certified grade is 57, and the average auction grade is 52. The availability of this issue makes it an attractive and important type coin that is plentiful in any grade desired, up to MS63. Choice Mint State pieces, such as the example now offered, are rare, and Gems are extremely rare.
A few scattered but trivial surface marks on each side are all that stand between this coin and a Gem grade. Both sides have frosty luster and full mint brilliance with lovely greenish-gold surfaces. The strike is sharp with nearly all details fully defined. Population: 39 in 64, 1 finer (4/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P5, PCGS# 8089)
