SCARCE 1834 CROSSLET 4 HALF EAGLE WITH CAC APPROVAL

McCloskey 5-D, R-4. Crosslet 4 variety.

From an overall rarity standpoint, the 1834 Crosslet 4 is the rarest Classic Head half eagle. It is most often seen in the EF40 to AU50 range but most pieces are very low-end and this issue is seldom seen with good eye appeal.

This evenly worn example has a nice obverse which retains some luster and probably grades a solid 45 on its own; as usual for the issue the reverse is not as choice and some weakness of strike may be mistaken for wear on the wings.

The last PCGS EF40 1834 Crosslet 4 half eagle to appear at auction realized $3,450 all the way back in July 2008. No CAC approved EF40 from either service has ever sold at auction.

In this grade, the 1834 Crosslet 4 makes an 1838-C or 1838-D look somewhat common yet its current lack of demand makes it worth far less than its Southern counterparts.

CAC has approved 3 in this grade with 9 finer.
