||1843-C $5 AU50 NGC. Variety 2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This About Uncirculated Charlotte half eagle retains considerable eye appeal despite a bit of strike weakness. There are no deep or significant marks on this coin; rather, the moderate circulation minimizes any abrasions. Prooflike flash surrounds the devices, and plentiful mint luster remains beneath attractive, orange-gold patina. This is a popular C-Mint issue not only for its scarcity, but also for its status as the final year of the small letters reverse. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $27.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
