1838-D Half Eagle, AU55
Only D-Mint Classic Head Five

1838-D $5 AU55 NGC. CAC. Variety 1-A, R.3. The 1838-D Classic Head half eagle is always in demand from both date and type collectors. The 1838-D is the only Classic Head five struck at the Dahlonega Mint, and it represents the first year of operations at that storied facility. Fewer than 350 specimens of the 1838-D survive in all grades, and the issue is very scarce in AU55 or finer grades. The present coin displays lightly abraded orange and peach-gold surfaces, with well-detailed design elements that show just a touch of high-point wear. Mint luster is slightly subdued, but still appealing. Census: 22 in 55, 29 finer (12/12).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25S6, PCGS# 8178)
