***Auction Highlight*** 1839-c Charlotte Classic Head $2 1/2 Gold Graded au58 Details By SEGS. Up for Auction is one of the few surviving near mint state examples of the 1839-c $2 ½ Classic Head Gold. Second and final year of the Obverse Mintmark subtype, here from the Charlotte Mint which, like New Orleans and Dahlonega, had opened the previous year, 1838. The 3 in the date is recut to the north of the original digit, while the 9 in the date is recut to the east. Both sides have a series of interesting die cracks. The obverse has a crack that runs through the left side of the original low 3 in the date, through the later 3, upward onto the face to the earlobe. A second crack, from a late state where the die may be close to shattering, runs from the obverse centering dot through the cheek and to star 2. Yet another runs from the top of the T in LIBERTY to star 9. On the reverse, one crack runs from under the beak to near the top of the eagle's wing and onward to the rim. A second crosses from the left (facing) top shield point, through the beak and to the lower right corner of the A in STATES. A final crack runs from the eagle's claws down through the large 2 and thence to the rim. Both sides are orange-gold with glints of hazel. Minor field chatter and a few light abrasions are grade-consistent. This piece is a rarity, as both the issue and the variety are seldom seen in near-Mint State. A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win, Don't let it get Away, you might not find its equal Coin 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
