Description:
Near-Mint 1840-C Half Eagle, Variety 2
1840-C $5 AU58 PCGS. Variety 2. The redesigned 1840-C half eagle was the first C-mint issue to have the mintmark moved to the reverse after the Classic Head coinage, making it a popular first-year type. This die variety has the mintmark shifted a bit further to the right (not to the left, as Winter writes) than on Variety 1, and die cracks appear on either side of the lower shield. The greenish-gold surfaces still show brilliant luster. The obverse displays quite a bit of planchet crumbling near the rims (and on Liberty's lower cheek), as does the reverse to a lesser degree. The strike is fairly soft in the centers, typical for the issue. Abrasions, while present, occur in smaller numbers and severity than usual. This piece appears quite close to the lower end of the Condition Census, with just a handful of Mint State pieces certified at both services combined. Population: 5 in 58, 1 finer (3/10).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25SD, PCGS# 8196)
