The 1848-D/D half eagle is a very underrated and undervalued coin. As collectors of Dahlonega gold become more interested in major die varieties, this coin should become more sought after in the future. Only specimens that show a sharp, clear trace of the first D qualify for examples of the 1848-D/D half eagle. Only 20 specimens are known. No Mint State coins are known.
