$7,500

Near-Mint 1850-D Half Eagle

Incredible Condition Rarity

Frosty medium gold surfaces are uncommonly smooth for a lightly circulated Dahlonega Mint half eagle. The central high points are a bit soft, but otherwise we note bold to sharp striking detail to design elements. The D mintmark is faint, typical of this reverse die, but not enough to classify this piece as a Weak D. Elusive in all grades due to extensive circulation, the 1850-D half eagle is typically represented by well worn, and often impaired survivors. Although not widely recognized as such, the 1850-D is one of the rarest Dahlonega Mint fives. In Choice About Uncirculated preservation this is one of the finest PCGS-certified examples from a mintage of 43,984 pieces. Just right for an advanced Southern gold cabinet, in which it will surely rank among the leading highlights. Provenance to the legendary Fairmont Collection is a testament to the superior quality, originality, and eye appeal.
