It's the variety 1, with weaker leg strike & die crack on reverse.







Any opinions?
Thanks

It's an amazing coin and one I would love to own. If it's yours already, be proud of it. If you're asking because you are considering buying it, then price comes into play in rendering an opinion. I am a bit surprised at the green bean on it, but that's likely due to me not having expertise in weak strike grading. Any Half Eagle with a C, D, or CC mint mark is impressive to me.

Five or so years back I decided I wanted a Charlotte and Dahlonega struck coins.
Mostly just to say I had one of each.
Interesting that the Half Eagles are less expensive than the Quarter Eagles.
And the $1 gold -- well that's a whole 'nother story.
Here's my two:

Very nice coin with a rare C mintmark but its slightly overgraded. I think XF40 would be a better representation.

CAC stickered it indicating that they feel it's worth 45 money but I don't find this coin strong for the grade. This piece appears to have an old, light cleaning, numerous contact marks, and wear more consistent with a 40 grade. By no means does that mean I wouldn't buy it at the right price; Just wouldn't pay the close to $3,000 someone might expect for a PCGS/CAC XF45.

Looks like a weak strike on the Obverse.
Overall, Not Bad.

Tremendous images, PH1221. Nice, original coin and a great addition to even the specialist's collection.
