Description

Condition Census 1842 Large Date Eagle

1842 $10 Large Date MS 60 NGC. Equally as rare as its Small Date counterpart, the Large Date variety probably constituted approximately half of the 81,507 eagles produced at the Philadelphia Mint this year. The median grade among survivors of this issue is Choice VF, a fact that is suggestive of extensive circulation. Indeed, the 1842 Large Date is a conditionally rare coin with a Mint State population of only seven examples between both NGC and PCGS (10/00). The centers on both sides are well defined, and the fields display modest semi-prooflike tendencies as the coin rotates beneath a light. The green-gold surfaces are kept from a higher grade by a group of small pinscratches in the obverse field above the date. (NGC ID# 262K, PCGS# 8584)
