Description

Delightful 1861-C Half Eagle, XF45

1861-C $5 XF45 PCGS. Variety 30-K. The only variety known. Die State II, as evidenced by a die crack that contacts the rim and the left serif of the M in AMERICA. Charming orange-gold patina covers the surfaces, which show scattered yet minor abrasions. The strike is slightly irregular, with the right stars significantly more detailed than the left. The centers are somewhat soft, as typically seen, and there is significant luster present in the fields. A delightful example from the final year of the Charlotte Mint. Only 6,879 half eagles were minted. Of that number it is believed that 887 examples were struck under the supervision of the Confederacy, and this later die state 1861-C could be one of those pieces.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25VL, PCGS# 8289)
