Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Although the mintage for the 1858-D half eagle is less than half the mintage of the 1858-C, the coins are currently of similar rarity. A fairly large number of examples have been offered at auction during the last two decades. The reason many of these scarce coins have shown up in the last decade is the number of great collections that have entered the marketplace—names such as Bass, Pittman, Milas and others come to mind. The appearance of these coins on the market can sometimes give a false impression of availability. Most of these coins are sold into strong hands and are not seen again for years. The majority of available 1858-D half eagles grade Extremely Fine or About Uncirculated. Mint State coins are rare, with the finest known example being the single NGC MS 65 coin that was part of the great Duke’s Creek Collection of Dahlonega gold.
