I recently purchased this coin which I thought had nice original surfaces and was priced fairly. What does the Community think about this one?

Id estimate it at a XF-40, though I am not too familiar with gold coins in general.

I'd also say XF-40, nice branch mint example.

Good strike for C mint. Solid xf40. Shot at xf45.

An attractive example with minimal distractions. My want list includes an example from both the Charlotte and Dahlonega mints for my type set, and one like this would definitely make me happy! I'd say VF35.

When I saw it before scrolling down, I thought XF40 and see I'm not alone.
I did not look at photograde or grading criteria. Just a guess and nice coin to own.
My favorite album!

My first thought was VF35, but then I thought Charlotte? I'm not so well versed on these aren't they known for being weakly struck or was that Dahlonega? I can never keep them straight in my head since I don't get into gold that much.

Hmmm. I think I'm thinking too much I will just stick with my first gut instinct.

Nice coin. Your first photos didn't really show how much luster the coin has.

The NGC coin pictured is NOT the OP coin , I ADDED pix of THAT one that I just recently acquired for comparison to the OP pictured
coin , which is most likely going to be an EF40 .

Pacificoin,
Can you post full-coin images of your example (which is obviously higher grade than mine)? I'd love to see the details better.

According to Doug Winter and Coin Facts the 1851-C half eagle is very scarce in AU, so congratulations on acquiring a terrific coin!
