    Noteworthy Near-Mint 1838-C Half Eagle

    1838-C $5 AU58 NGC. Breen-6516, Repunched 5, Variety 1-B, R.5. At the left reverse, one leaf nearly touches the U in UNITED. The reverse is in a later die state that shows the bold diagonal die crack that cut short its operational die life. The 1-B is noted as more elusive than its 1-A counterpart and is rare in an absolute sense. As one might expect, higher-grade examples pose an exceptional challenge.
    Only a touch of friction visits the highpoints of the well struck portrait, and the still-lustrous surfaces, pale yellow-gold with faint green accents, show few marks overall. While the combined certified population shows five Mint State examples, this near-Mint exemplar would make a wonderful addition to the specialist's cabinet of Charlotte gold. A wonderful Classic Head branch mint exemplar. Census: 7 in 58, 4 finer (11/07).
    From The Waxhaw Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25S5, PCGS# 8177)
