1837 $5.00 NGC AU53 CAC

As a date, the 1837 is the most undervalued of all the Classic Head half eagles from the Philadelphia mint. This nice, original example shows attractive deep original green-gold color with a considerable amount of dirt seen on the reverse. Nearly every example of this date that I have seen has been dipped or conserved and pieces with good eye appeal are actually quite scarce.

This is the only 1837 half eagle in this grade to have received approval from CAC. A total of nineteen higher have been approved as well.
