Mint Mark D
Description 1853-D $5 Large D AU58 NGC. CAC. Variety 35-AA. A scarce variety with the mintmark positioned high and far right above the E of FIVE, where it touches both the feather tip and branch. This issue is known as one of the most available Dahlonega half eagles, adding to its popularity as a type coin. The current coin is sharper than most examples, although the eagle is soft in the usual places. All of the star centers are bold except for stars 7 and 8, and the coronet is weak at the uppermost tip. Strong luster remains, giving this near-Mint coin excellent eye appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4700.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
