Description

    Rare 1852-C Half Eagle, MS 62 NGC

    1858-C MS 62 NGC. Considered by Breen as "very rare above EF; prohibitively rare Unc." Ranked an R.8 in mint condition with only 2-3 pieces believed known, this piece is obviously among the finest examples extant of this rare issue. The surfaces are bright and show a mixture of semi-prooflikeness and mint frost. The striking details are quite strong on the obverse with only slight softness noted in the center of the reverse. Each side is typically abraded for an MS 62 with a couple of areas of slight granularity noted in the reverse fields. Population: 3 in 62, none finer (6/98). (NGC ID# CLAK, PCGS# 8277)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
