Description:
Important 1851-C Half Eagle MS64, Tied for Finest Certified
1851-C $5 MS64 NGC. Variety 16-G. Ex: Ashland City. Tied with a single PCGS coin for highest certified honors of this challenging Charlotte issue, and once residing in Stanley Elrod's collection of Southern gold. While eventually finding its way into the Ashland City Collection, we first sold this coin in the 1999 February Long Beach Sale, lot 6272, where it was described in part: "Of the 5-6 Mint State pieces known today, this is the finest...Unlike most '51-C Fives, this piece is remarkably well defined on the hair curls and peripheral stars of the obverse. It is only on the reverse that traces of a soft strike can be detected on the neck of the eagle and arrow fletchings. The fields are bright and prooflike, this effect having been created by heavily striating the dies. Another atypical feature on this coin is the lack of large and deep abrasions. There is, however, an irregular outline around the eye of Liberty from a very shallow planchet flake. There are, of course, numerous small abrasions and luster grazes on each side, but none that could be considered important enough to warrant individual mention. An exemplary coin and one sure to interest the many collectors of Southern gold." Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer (12/04).(#8247) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25U6, PCGS# 8247)
