1842-C. Small Date. PCGS graded AU-58. This 1842-C Small Date issue is quite rare. It is estimated perhaps 80 to 100 pieces survive, these from a conservative original mintage of 7,500 pieces. Relatively clean surfaces overall show the usual light handling marks and nicks from brief circulation. Sharp for this date and mint, with Liberty sporting considerable definition on her curls and most of the obverse stars. The eagle is mostly sharp too, save for minor softness on the neck. Typical golden-yellow color throughout, with traces of luster in selected recesses of the design. One of the most difficult of the branch mint issues of the entire half eagle series and worthy of the most advanced collection, and a coin that any specialist will long covet. Pop 6; 2 finer, 1 in 62, 1 in 63+. (PCGS # 8208) .
Estimated Value $38,000 - 42,000.
