arge Letters variety. Early die state.

The Large Letters is the more available of the two varieties of 1843-O half eagle. It is still scarcer than its mintage of 82,000 would suggest and it isa harder coin to find in all grades than the more highly-valued 1843-C and 1843-D half eagles.

This well-detailed piece is struck in light green-gold and has some slight reddish coloration in the recessed areas. It shows a typical number of marks for the date and grade but none are deep or detracting.

Remarkably, there are no auction records for this date in PCGS AU53 in close to two decades.

Very undervalued in comparison to the Charlotte and Dahlonega half eagles of this year.
