    Description

    1850-C Half Eagle, AU50
    Strong Reverse

    1850-C $5 AU50 PCGS. Variety 4. The 1 in the date is free of the bust, and the mintmark is weak. The issue's mintage of 63,591 coins ensures its status as a relatively collectible Charlotte Mint product. The reverse is strongly struck, while the obverse is marginally softer, contrary to what is normally seen. The lower part of the eagle exhibits particularly bold definition on the legs, talons, fletchings, and olive leaves. Attractive yellow-gold surfaces show reddish-violet accents and a few tiny, peppered abrasions.
    From The Brookside Collection. (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25TZ, PCGS# 8244)

    Weight: 8.36 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
