1843-D. NGC graded EF-45. Untoned and well struck with some light surface abrasions from its years in circulation. The gold half eagle was the workhorse denomination in this metal throughout much of the 19th century, just as the half dollar was the main circulating silver coin used in more modest day-to-day transactions. Smaller gold and larger gold was not used as much, mainly as bank backing of paper money issues and for import-export purposes along with non-circulating gold bars.
Estimated Value $1,800 - 1,900.

Realized $2,185
