Description

1857-C Half Eagle, MS60
Eye-Appealing for the Grade

1857-C $5 MS60 NGC. Variety 1. The protruding die line from the rim near star 11 helps attribution. This MS60 NGC example shows eye appeal considerably better than the grade might imply. The obverse shows a couple of scrapes above the head and some behind the neck, not large; the reverse shows some light field hairlines, a small patch of die rust above the beak, and a thin scrape above the head, yet all of these fail to significantly diminish the eye appeal of surfaces that are somewhat prooflike and well-struck with lovely orange-red color. Census: 5 in 60, 21 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25V3, PCGS# 8272)
