The 1824 half eagle boasts a low mintage of 17,340 pieces, with an estimated 30 to 40 examples extant today. This attractive AU presents a rare opportunity sure to catch the attention of advanced early gold collectors. Gently circulated surfaces reveal no individually bothersome abrasions and retain ample mint luster. The strike is uniformly bold with light, even rub over the high-points. Antique-gold surfaces are touched with original deeper orange tints throughout creating lovely eye appeal.
