Semi-reflective surfaces have a surplus of mint lustre gives this coin an attractive appearance. The strike is strong in most places with just some light weakness in the curl above the ear. A few very minuscule rim tics do not detract much. A very attractive type coin.
2144 1834 Crosslet 4 CH AU $15,000.00
1834 Crosslet 4. Choice About Uncirculated and very close to full Mint State. Semi-reflective surfaces...
Choice About Uncirculated and very close to full Mint State. Semi-reflective surfaces that have a pale green-gold patina. The strike is very good and adds further to this coin's aura. Plenty of mint lustre radiates from the surfaces giving this coin marvelous eye appeal. Some smoothing at the rims is seen, otherwise this coin has just some light field abrasion as a detriment. The Crosslet '4'...  more
2145 1834 Crosslet 4 EF $2,100.00

Extremely Fine. Plenty of lustre over greenish-gold toning. The strike is mediocre over surfaces that lack any meaningful marks. A very rare variety that is about five times as rare as the plain 4 variety.

A pleasingly bold strike, smooth lustrous fields and faintly frosted reliefs distinguish this handsome example of the first Half Eagle type to see widespread and successful circulation. Close examination reveals some scattered tics on Liberty's face.
2147 1837 EF $800.00

Extremely Fine. This pale lemon yellow example displays satiny lustre clinging to the stars on the obverse and to the legend on the reverse. A pleasing example displaying just light circulation.
2148 1838 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $9,500.00
1838 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Bright and lustrous throughout, with typical ancient orange-gold...
Bright and lustrous throughout, with typical ancient orange-gold toning so rarely seen on early gold these days. The strike is sharp, particularly on Liberty's rounded curls. A single star above her head band lacks full radial lines, otherwise this coin boasts a near perfect strike. Even the reverse shows full knobby claws on the eagle, and all the feathers are crisp. Examination with...  more

Very Fine. Pale green-gold toning over surfaces that are respectable for the grade. The strike is typically weak in the central area on both sides. There are no major marks to impair the eye appeal of this very scarce date of which only 18,939 pieces were struck.
