Lustrous MS62 1857-C Half Eagle1857-C $5 MS62 PCGS. Variety 1. The 1857-C is one of the more frequently encountered Charlotte fives, but it is seldom located in Mint State. The numbers of Uncirculated coins certified by both of the major services are greatly inflated by resubmissions. Probably only 10-12 pieces actually exist in Mint State out of the 225-275 coins believed to exist in all grades today. This is an attractive, sharply struck example. It lacks the usually seen heavy abrasions, with just a few scattered field marks and ticks appearing on the devices, mainly with a loupe. The margins show a pronounced reddish patina on each side.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25V3, PCGS# 8272)
