Goldberg Auctioneers Auction Pre-Long Beach Coin Auction May-2003 Soft golden luster and a nice, even strike. One of the classic, condition rarities of the CC-mintmarked Half Eagles. The low mintage of 8,680 pieces automatically limited the number of possible Mint State survivors, and virtually the entire mintage circulated heavily. At auction, this date appears perhaps twice a year, so the opportunities to buy any example in any grade is rare, indeed. The best example certified by PCGS is a single MS-62; NGC has yet to grade a Mint State example of this date! Thus, in theory at least, this may be the finest example known to exist. It is certainly the finest example we've ever handled.
Estimated Value $40,000 - 50,000.
