Description

Elusive Small Date 1850 Eagle, MS61

1850 $10 Small Date MS61 NGC. A "very scarce and under-appreciated, major variety" according to Garrett and Guth, who highlight the Small Date variant of the 1850 eagle as "an apparent mistake"; they claim "the Small Date punch was intended for large cents and half eagles." Indeed, on this MS61 example, the date seems small and lost in the roomy exergue. This moderately abraded example is radiant yellow-gold with softness on most of the peripheral stars but better definition at the central devices. An alloy spot appears over the eagle's left (facing) wing. For the variety, Census: 4 in 61, 0 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2638, PCGS# 8604)
