Description

    1842 Small Date Eagle, MS61
    Conditionally Rare

    1842 $10 Small Date MS61 PCGS. Two different punch sizes were used for the dates on the 1842 eagles, with the Small Date easily differentiated by a plain crossbar on the 4. This variety is also the rarer of the two by a healthy margin, an assessment substantiated not only by the certified population data, but also by the recovery of 15 pieces from the S.S. Republic (Four Small dates versus 11 Large Dates). This piece exhibits bright green-gold color over each side, with well-struck design elements and minimal abrasions for the grade. A die crack from the reverse rim above the tip of the eagle's left (facing) wing, through the wing and into the shield, identifies a late die state. With a mintage of little more than 18,000 pieces, the Small Date issue is rarely seen in any Mint State grade. Population: 1 in 61, 2 finer (5/14).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 262M, PCGS# 8585)

    Weight: 16.72 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
