Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: A fairly large number of 1858-C half eagles have been offered at auction during the past two decades. Most of the coins offered for sale and certified by the major grading services have been in the Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated grade range. The date is scarce, but it is also one of the more readily available half eagles from the Charlotte Mint. There are probably only about two dozen examples of the date that are truly Mint State. Among the finest is an NGC MS 63 coin, which sold in 2010 at auction for $21,275. NGC has certified one coin at the MS 64 level, but the coin has not crossed the auction block.
