1840 half eagle brings $240,000
Among a number of strong results in the Heritage FUN Platinum night, the one that jumped out at me was a coin I had some interest in but chose not to pursue - the 1840 half eagle in PCGS 65+/CAC. It is the highest graded 1840 at PCGS and the CDN/CAC price for this coin, which is the finest stickered coin, is $59,000.
I thought it might go for somewhere between $60-70,000. Instead, it brought $240,000. Glad I didn't waste time trying to figure out a bid for it but congratulations to the new owner.
