Description

    Elusive 1843-O Large Letters Half Eagle, AU58

    1843-O $5 Large Letters AU58 PCGS. Most easily recognized as the Large Letters variety by the placement of the O mintmark above the VE of FIVE. The mintage of this early New Orleans half eagle is a comparatively high 101,075 pieces (which the 2008 Guide Book breaks out as 19,075 for the Small Letters and 82,000 for the Large Letters), but survivors in AU and finer condition are infrequently offered. This near-Mint example displays yellow-gold surfaces that retain ample luster in the recesses. Generally well struck, with moderate abrasions. Population: 4 in 58, 3 finer (3/08).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 25T6, PCGS# 8216)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
