Uncirculated 1847-C Five Dollar
1847-C $5 MS60 PCGS. Variety 1. Wonderfully original with
medium natural color that deepens at the 8 in the date. The fields
are a little ticky (hence the grade) but there are no marks that
deserve special mention other than a small depression in the
obverse field between stars 2 and 3. We have seen inferior examples
of this date in holders marked MS61 and even MS62.
High-Grade Charlotte Type Coin
As one might expect from an issue with the highest mintage of any half eagle from this mint, the 1847-C is one of the most common Charlotte issues. But it is scarcer than generally believed in higher grades and very rare in Uncirculated. There are fewer than a dozen known in Uncirculated. The finest is a PCGS MS65 that is Ex: Pittman/Farouk/Col. Green. There are also at least three that grade MS63: the Dingler/Elrod coin, the Cinclair coin (Ex: Stack's 1/07, lot 5142) and the Milas coin. The first is graded by PCGS while the other two are graded by NGC.
