SCARCE AU50 1851-O HALF EAGLE WITH CAC APPROVAL

The 1851-O is comparable in rarity to the 1846-O and there are around 100 examples known with most in the EF40 to AU50 range. Locating an 1851-O half eagle with natural color and choice surfaces is very difficult as most have been cleaned or “improved” and this issue saw extensive circulation in the Antebellum South.

This is a pleasing coin for the grade with nice green-gold splashes over a russet base. There is a sufficient amount of luster to justify the assigned grade and the strike is typical for the issue with some minor weakness seen at the upper central obverse and the corresponding reverse.

The most recent APR for this date in NGC AU50 is $3,055 for a non-CAC piece which sold for $3,055 as Heritage 7/14: 4585.

I haven’t handled a nice 1851-O half eagle in a while and I expect this piece to sell quickly.

CAC has approved three in this grade with eight finer.
