Description:
Rare 1842-C Small Date Half Eagle AU55
1842-C $5 Small Date AU55 NGC. Variety 4-C, the only known dies. Die State II. The first 4,595 Half Eagles produced at the Charlotte facility in 1842 displayed a small date logotype like that found on C-mints from the previous two years. As a whole, the 1842-C Small Date is the rarest C-mint Half Eagle, and it is also the most difficult to locate in high (AU-Mint State) grades. There are two die states of '42-C Small Date Fives, Die State I being recognized by the absence of an obverse rim cud at 12:00 and the more prevalent Die State II, as on this coin, with the rim cud centered over star 7. Most often encountered in well circulated condition, Winter notes that properly graded Extremely Fine coins are "about as nice as one can generally hope to find." Offered here is a well produced, still-lustrous example with a slight reddish tinge over both sides. Surface marks are relatively minimal and unobtrusive, with nothing standing out as mentionable. Aside from the extraordinary MS61 sold in our 2004 FUN Sale (for over $77,000), this attractive representative compares favorably with any 1842-C Small Date Half Eagle we have been privileged to offer. Population: 2 in 55, 11 finer (11/04).
