Description & Analysis

The mintage of 11,828 pieces places this issue about in the middle of the rarity for the coveted Carson City half eagles, but in high grades, this is certainly one of the top five issues in terms of rarity. Most survivors show extensive handling marks from circulation and often have evidence of cleaning.
