Description

The First of a Pair of Uncirculated 1841-D Half Eagles

1841-D $5 MS 62 PCGS. Small Mintmark. Sharply impressed in medium yellow-gold, with a touch of hazy orange-gold color just beginning to form. There are two tiny green verdigris spots on the obverse, at the rear curls, that are probably removable, and a reverse toning spot on the rim above the O in OF is a good way to identify this coin.
Variety 5-D. This reverse is quickly identifiable by an unusual, small hollow round spot at the top of the second vertical shield stripe. The other reverse found on 1841-D half eagles, known as variety 5-B, employs a reverse of 1840 with a medium mintmark. It is considerably scarcer than the small mintmark variety.
From the Chestatee Collection; Ex: Donovan and Hudgens Sale (B & M, 11/93), lot 1498, where it realized $16,500. (NGC ID# 25SR, PCGS# 8204)
