1840-D Half Eagle AU55 NGC $5

This 1840-D Half Eagle is the First Liberty Head that was struck at the Dahlonega GA mint.  This example has a blazing yellow golden mint luster that comes to life when cartwheeled.  This 1840-D $5 has a low population at NGC with only 15 examples being graded in AU55 and only 19 in all higher grades.  With a mintage of 22,896 coins; this is the lowest mintage Dahlonega Half in the 1840’s.  We recently acquired this coin out of a private collection that is where most of these fine examples go to live for many years.  This coin is hard to find in every grade and extremely hard in AU and Unc examples.

This half has been graded by NGC as a AU55.
