Description

Lovely 1855-C Half Eagle, Choice Extremely Fine

1855-C $5 XF45 NGC. Variety 23-J. The only variety known. Lovely sun-gold patina drapes each side of this later Charlotte Mint product. Myriad abrasions are in the fields, but none are worthy of individual mention. The first couple of stars are a little weak, as usual, but the rest of the obverse is sharply defined. The reverse shows excellent definition on the eagle's wings and the shield, but there is the typical weakness on the head, claws, and arrows. Lots of luster is present, which is surprising given the grade. Only 39,789 pieces were struck.
From The Jerry Kochel Collection.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25UR, PCGS# 8262)
