The 1847-C is one of the more common half eagles from this mint but it is much scarcer than generally assumed in properly graded AU58 and quite rare in Uncirculated.
This lightly worn slider shows natural light green gold color and the quality of strike is first-rate for the date. There is a small scrape below star seven on the obverse and a circulation mark under the second T in STATES. The eye appeal is excellent.
The last NGC AU58 1847-C half eagle to sell at auction was a non-CAC piece which brought $4,493 as Heritage 1/12: 6353.
A suitable piece for type purposes but clearly nice enough for a high-end date collection of Charlotte half eagles.
CAC has approved just this one example in AU58 with five finer.
