***Auction Highlight*** 1840 C Charlotte Gold Liberty Half Eagle $5 Graded Select Unc By USCG. The vibrant sunshine-yellow patina of this piece is adorned by subtle notions of olive and amber hues in select areas. a satiny complexion that flirts with proof like reflectivity on the Obverse and is Fully Proof like on the reverse. The strike is satisfying for the issue, with just a trifle softness to Liberty's curls and the eagle's neck but proud definition elsewhere. Intense scrutiny with a glass reveals nothing in the way of major distractions. Several minute marks are scattered over each side. A truly attractive and satisfying jewel. 1840 marked the introduction of Christian Gobrecht's Liberty design type to the quarter eagle series, ensuring that examples struck at each of the four operating mints that year would eventually see perpetual demand from collectors. The Charlotte Mint, opened just two years prior in 1838, struck 12,822 quarter eagles, rivaling the 18,859 examples struck by the central mint in Philadelphia that year. The 1840-C issue saw extensive regional circulation and very few examples remain for collectors today. Of an extant population of perhaps 150 pieces total, is it though that less than ten survive in Mint State, stressing the significance and immense desirability of the present offering. A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win, Don't let it get Away, you might not find its equal Coin. I give this coin my highest recommendation
