    1842 Small Date Eagle, AU58
    Underrated Issue

    1842 $10 Small Date AU58 PCGS. Numerous denominations at different mints in 1842 saw variations in the size of the peripheral lettering and/or date, including the quarter, half dollar, half eagle, and eagle, resulting in the Small Date, Medium/Large Date, and Small Letters/Large Letters varieties. The 1842 Small Date eagle is an underrated issue produced in an amount only 30% that of its Large Date counterpart. This is a highly lustrous golden-orange example of the Small Date that shows much reflectivity in the fields. There are few marks of any significance and lots of eye appeal. The strike is bold throughout save for the bottom two stars, adding to the obvious allure. Population: 3 in 58, 3 finer (1/14).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2010), lot 1717.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 262M, PCGS# 8585)
