Description:
Stunning MS 63 1841-D Half Eagle
1841-D $5 MS 63 PCGS. A superb, totally original example with lovely, light green-gold color atop surfaces that are vibrant and satiny on the obverse, slightly reflective on the reverse. The strike is very sharp with the exception of the outside points of each star which, curiously, are flat. With the exception of a very shallow mint-made planchet flake between the final two stars, the surfaces are very clean. This is one of the nicest Dahlonega half eagles that will be available to collectors for quite some time, as nearly all the properly graded MS 64 and MS 65 pieces are off the market in strongly held collections.
The 1841-D is among the more available Dahlonega half eagles from the 1840s in higher grades. There are between 35 and 40 examples known in AU grades and another 10 or so in Mint State.
The finest 1841-D half eagles that we are aware of are as follows:
1. Duke's Creek Collection, Ex: Stack's 5/95: 441; Ed Milas Collection; Stack's 10/94: 1094; James Stack Collection. Graded MS 65 by PCGS.
2. New York Collection, Ex: Heritage 1996 ANA: 8308; Superior's session of Auction '89: 893; RARCOA's session of Auction '81: 444. Graded MS 64 by NGC.
3. This coin, Ex: Chestatee Collection; RARCOA/Akers 8/96: 410. Graded MS 63 by PCGS.
4. Heritage 2/99: 6238; Ex: Miller Collection. Graded MS 63 by PCGS.
5. (tie) Chestatee Collection (the coin offered above), Ex: Bowers and Merena 11/93: 1498; (and) Heritage 2/99: 6237; Ex: Miller Collection; Bowers and Ruddy's Eliasberg Sale (October, 1982): 418.
From the Chestatee Collection. (NGC ID# 25SR, PCGS# 8204)
