David Akers (1975/88): The 1849-C is one of the most common C Mint Half Eagles and it appeared at auction more times in my survey than any other Half Eagle from this Mint. That does not mean that it is not rare, however, because it is, especially in strictly uncirculated condition. Nevertheless, I have seen more AU's and uncs of this date (albeit no really choice ones) than I have of any other Charlotte Mint Half Eagle, although VF and EF are the grades one is most likely to encounter.
