Description:
1859-D Large D Half Eagle, AU55
Scarce, Low-Mintage Issue
1859-D $5 Large D AU55 PCGS. CAC. Variety 37-EE. The 1859-D has a memorably low mintage of only 10,366 pieces, second lowest in the series. Only 120-140 examples are believed to exist today, and most examples are no better than XF. Few are known in AU, and the 1859-D is a major rarity in Uncirculated. The reddish-gold surfaces show the usual softness of strike on the eagle's neck and the curls around Liberty's face, but only slight abrasions are scattered over each side, none of which are worthy of mention. A curious spot of green is located just below star 7. (PCGS# 98282)
