    1854-C Liberty Half Eagle, AU58
    Weak Mintmark, Variety 2

    1854-C $5 Weak C, Variety 2, AU58 PCGS. This is a much scarcer date than expected, with a relatively higher mintage of 39,283 pieces. Although the Charlotte mintmark is faint, it is fully outlined. The mintmark was evenly but lightly impressed into the die, and all C-mint half eagles struck from this reverse die have this feature. The present piece has a reasonable strike considering the mint of origin. The fields are impressively void of marks, although a few shallow mint-made strike-throughs are present. Population: 8 in 58, 6 finer (9/17).

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
