Description & Analysis

An estimated 150-175 pieces are known and this date ranks right in the middle of the half eagles from this mint in terms of high grade and overall rarity. Most 1860-C half eagles are found in VF and XF and properly graded AUs are quite scarce with three dozen or so known. In Uncirculated there appear to be around six to eight known.
