    1858-C Half Eagle, AU55
    Popular Charlotte Issue

    1858-C $5 AU55 NGC. CAC. Variety 2. With 275 to 375 examples believed to survive in all grades, the 1858-C is considered one of the more "common" Charlotte half eagles overall. It can usually be found in AU condition (with some patience), and such pieces are popular as type coins. This coin represents the scarcer of the two known varieties, and displays original green-gold color, with only slight softness on the central eagle feathers. A number of small abrasions are scattered about, the most obvious located on the cheek. Planchet roughness is also noted around the eagle, a common trait on this issue.
