Lot 1952

1860-C. PCGS graded MS-61. A median rarity within the Charlotte gold series, the 1860-C is rarer in Mint State than many other half eagles such as the 1856-C, 1859-C and 1861-C. This example displays the typical striking quality of the issue, the obverse generally bold in detail and the reverse somewhat softly defined on the principal device. Both sides emit an even yellow-golden color, the surfaces also revealing tinges of luster in the protected areas of the design. Somewhat scuffy fields now obscure the original mint finish, but the surfaces are minimally abraded for the grade. This example is destined for inclusion in a renowned collection of Southern gold. Pop 5; 4 finer, 3 in 62, 1 in 63. (PCGS # 8285) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.
