Description:
Remarkable MS60 1842-C Large Date Five
1842-C $5 Large Date MS60 NGC. Variety 1, the only Large Date die pairing. After several thousand 1842-C half eagles were minted, the decision was made to enlarge the size of the date, which created two distinct types for the year. Although the rarity of the 1842-C Small Date eclipses that of its Large Date counterpart, the latter is scarce in all grades and exceptionally rare in Mint State. Flashy luster enhances the yellow-gold surfaces of this well-defined specimen. Myriad abrasions define the grade, but none merit specific mention. An impressive and conditionally rare representative. Winter's latest C-mint edition estimates that only seven to nine Mint State specimens exist, which if true would make this piece narrowly miss the bottom of the Condition Census.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25SW, PCGS# 8209)
