PCGS Coin Number: 8196
Most 1840-C half eagles circulated extensively and many show numerous planchet irregularities. This date has a lower survival rate than most of the other issues from the 1839 to 1841 period. About Uncirculated are rare and just a few have been graded at the Mint State level. John Jay Pittman‚Äôs coin (now an NGC MS-64) is a full two points ahead of any other example known. That coin is well struck for the issue and features interesting die breaks on the reverse. The Smithsonian‚Äôs collection contains a Mint State coin; another one of the finest examples known of this date. All 1840-C half eagles are of the broad-mill variety.
