    1858-C Half Eagle, MS62
    Among the Finest at PCGS
    Fully Struck C-Mint Type Coin

    1858-C $5 MS62 PCGS. Variety 1. The tip of the fletching points to the mintmark. Doug Winter calls the 1858-C the most plentiful Charlotte half eagle in high grades, but it is hard to consider an issue with 10 to 15 Uncirculated survivors "common." The full strike seen throughout this top-notch MS62 five dollar gold piece is perhaps its most impressive feature. The stars, curls, feathers, fletchings, and claws are razor-sharp. Green-tinged medium yellow-gold surfaces retain luster in the recesses, adding to the appeal. Wispy marks and a couple of deeper abrasions define the grade. Collectors in search of a Charlotte Mint type coin should strongly consider this offering. Population: 8 in 62 (1 in 62+), 0 finer (6/17).(Registry values: P3)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
