Lot 1947

1856-C. PCGS graded MS-62. Sharply defined, save for several of the obverse stars, with a softly frosted in texture, this coin is both better produced and better preserved than the typically seen 1856-C half eagle. Even the C mintmark is sharp and clear, not always the case on this issue. There are no individually distracting abrasions mentioned despite a somewhat scuffy appearance in the fields. A liberal overlay of rich honey-golden patina deepens toward the border areas and rounds out an impressive list of attributes for this conditionally rare Charlotte-Mint half eagle. Pop 1; 1 finer in 63. (PCGS # 8267) .
Estimated Value $20,000 - 22,000.
