TOTALLY ORIGINAL 1856-C HALF EAGLE, PCGS AU55

While fairly easy to locate in lower grades, properly graded Choice AU 1856-C half eagles are very scarce and this is especially true for coins with deep, natural color.

This coin is from the same source as the AU50 1844-D half eagle listed above and like that coin it is 100% original with splendid deep natural green-gold and orange hues on the obverse and the reverse. There is little in the way of wear and this coin likely saw minimal time in circulation. The obverse is very choice and it approaches the 58 level; there is an old scuff on the reverse below TAT in STATES which is almost certainly why this coin didn’t sticker at CAC. In my opinion, it still should have…

Since 2005, just one example of this date in PCGS AU55 has sold at auction and it brought $4,400 as Heritage 12/17: 4126.

This is an outstanding piece which is among the most cosmetically appealing 1856-C half eagles I have ever seen.
