The 1858-C is one of the more available half eagles from the Charlotte mint. As with all Charlotte half eagles, properly graded AU58′s are scarce and they are excellent vales when compared to MS61 coins which,, typically, are double the price (or more) and often are less eye appealing.

This sharply struck example features rich natural russet hues on the obverse and, a bit less so, on the reverse. The obverse is clean and choice while there are a few small ticks on the reverse including a small cluster below A in STATES. Some roughness in the reverse fields is as made and is seen on many 1858-C half eagles.

Only one PCGS AU58 has sold at auction since June 2008 and it realized $4,994 as Heritage 4/13: 5799. An NGC AU58 brought $4,700 as Heritage 4/14: 6421.

This is the nicest available quality for the date at less than $5,000.
