CHOICE AU 1834 PLAIN 4 HALF EAGLE WITH CAC APPROVAL

McCloskey 3-C, R-5. Plain 4 variety.

There are literally hundreds of 1834 Plain 4 half eagles graded AU58 but only a small percentage of these are likely to be approved by CAC. Properly graded examples are not easy to locate.

This nice russet-colored slider shows a crescent of reddish color at 4:00 to 6:00 on the obverse; the reverse shows similar color just past the 5 in the value. The strike shows the usual weakness at the central obverse while the surfaces are very choice.

The last CAC approved 1834 Plain 4 half eagle to sell at auction realized $3,878 as Goldberg 6/16: 1441; it was graded by PCGS and was in an older holder.

A nice piece which should be of interest to the variety collector.

CAC has approverd 37 in this grade with 34 finer.
