CHOICE PCGS/CAC AU55 1853-C HALF EAGLE
Variety 1, early die state.
The 1853-C is common by the standards of Charlotte half eagles with likely more than 300 known in all grades. It becomes scarce in the AU55 to AU58 range and it is rare in Uncirculated.
This coin is fresh to the market and it comes from a European source. It is very well struck with a strong mintmark and sharply defined centers. The surfaces are lightly marked and semi-reflective with good visual appeal. Both sides show light green-gold color.
Only one PCGS AU55 1853-C half eagle has been auctioned since 2009 and it was a CAC approved piece which brought $4,700 as Stacks Bowers 3/17: 2378.
This date is not readily available in grades higher than this.
CAC has approved four in this grade with three finer.
