Description & Analysis

Nearly 100,000 1843-D half eagles were struck and, as one might expect, this is a relatively available coin in lower grades. There are 225-250 pieces known with a little more than three-quarters of these in the Very Fine to Extremely Fine range. Around four dozen AUs are known with most grading no better than AU50 to AU53. In Uncirculated, the 1843-D is a very rare coin with just six to eight pieces known.
