1852-C $5 NGC AU58

As would be expected because of the relatively high mintage for the Charlotte Mint, the 1852-C half eagle is one of the more common dates from this Southern mint. Circulated examples in grades of Very Fine to About Uncirculated are offered rather often. The date at one time was very rare in Uncirculated, particularly at the choice level. In the mid-1980s the author, Jeff Garrett, purchased a small group of five very choice 1852-C half eagles from Silvertowne Rare Coins. The coins graded MS-63 to MS-64. Most of the high-grade coins in the population reports today are those examples. The numbers have been inflated by resubmissions. Most of these coins have been off the market for years, and just one example has traded at auction in the last decade. The date is sometimes found weakly struck on the central portions, and high-grade examples with seawater surfaces are seen on occasion.
