VF Detail 1838-C $5 1838-C Half Eagle Winter 1 (1-A). Genuine – Cleaned – VF Detail PCGS. This bright yellow-gold specimen affords a definite olive glow. Though lightly cleaned long ago, this specimen still retains a certain dignity at arm’s length, and if such a thing as a “filler” example of this scarcity exists, this must be it. Lightly marked, the most obvious blemish on the reverse between the uppermost leaf pair and the wing above. One of 17,179 examples produced, the lowest mintage figure of the three active mints that year. The 1838-C half eagle represents the final year of a short-lived design type that began in 1834; in 1839, the more familiar Liberty Head would begin its lengthy reign in commerce.
