    Description

    1842 Large Date MS 64 PCGS. A scarce and valuable early ten whose mintage of 81,507 pieces belies its true rarity. In lower grades there is little difference in rarity or price between the Large and Small Date varieties, but in AU and mint state the Large Date is significantly rarer. It is termed "prohibitively rare" in AU according to Breen. This is unquestionably the finest Large Date known. In fact, it is the finest of either variety. This is a coin that cannot fail to impress the viewer. The mint luster is full and rolls around the surfaces virtually unimpeded by the abrasions that lesser graded coins show. The design elements are sharply defined on each side with only a trace of weakness noted on several of the stars on the obverse. There are no singularly important or mentionable abrasions on either side that would aid in tracing the pedigree of this important coin. On the reverse there are several minute copper stains around the figure of the eagle, and somewhat larger ones on either side of TEN D. A magnificent coin and one of the most visually impressive eagles in the Warren Miller Collection. (NGC ID# 262M, PCGS# 8584)
