Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1841-D half eagle is a moderately scarce coin in the lower states of preservation. Most pieces found for sale are in Very Fine or Extremely Fine condition. Finding a problem-free example even at that level can be difficult. About Uncirculated coins of the date are scarce, but they do show up at auction on occasion. There are about two dozen coins known that can qualify as Mint State. The coin most popularly considered the finest known of the date is the famed NGC MS-65 Duke’s Creek Collection example. The coin last sold for $88,000 in 1995 in the auction of the Ed Milas No Motto Half Eagle Collection. The date is sometimes seen with rather substantial obverse die cracks.
