1839-C $5 XF45 PCGS....
Scarce 1839-C Half Eagle, XF451839-C $5 XF45 PCGS. Variety 1-A, the only known die pair and a scarce one-year type. Few non-numismatists would guess that the "C" mintmark on this coin represents a 19th-century United States mint located at Charlotte, North Carolina. The Charlotte Mint operated from 1838 until 1861, and only produced gold coinage. This piece has a better-than-average strike, although the eagle's talons and arrow fletchings are somewhat mushy. There are a few abrasions on each side, the most noteworthy being a dig located just above the D in FIVE D, on the lower reverse. Population: 15 in 45, 21 finer (3/08). (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25S8, PCGS# 8192)
