1858-C $5 Liberty Head Half Eagle PCGS AU53 (Charlotte)
PCGS Coin Number: 8277
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. This 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 this date that are truly Mint State. Among the finest is a PCGS MS-63 coin; which sold in 2004 at auction for $29;900 and was subsequently upgraded to MS-64 by NGC. The 1858-C half eagle has reappeared at auction several times in the last decade; giving collectors ample opportunities to acquire this date.
Due to market volatility, prices and availiability on coins are subject to change.
