Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1845-D half eagle is relatively common in low-grade condition for a coin from the Dahlonega gold that is reasonably priced. Most of the survivors are damaged or heavily cleaned. As can be seen from auction records and population numbers, the 1845-D half eagle is offered quite frequently in grades of Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. Truly Mint State coins of the issue are quite rare. Just a dozen Uncirculated coins are known. The finest known example of the 1845-D half eagle is the famous Norweb/Bass specimen. Harry W. Barr Jr. purchased the coin in 1987 for $66,000, an astounding price for the time. It was sold in 1999 at his estate for $57,500, and then it resold as an MS65 in 2006 for $80,500.
