Small Date variety.

Varieties of 1842-P eagles are known with a Small Date and a Large Date. The former is scarcer although its rarity has been overstated in the past. There are likely in the area of 125-150 known, mostly in EF and the lower AU grades. Properly graded AU53 to AU55 pieces are scarce and this date is rare in Uncirculated with an estimated four to six known.

This well struck orange-gold example shows abrasions on the surfaces as is typical for the variety but they are less detracting than normal. A large reverse die crack begins at the rim around 10:00, travels through the right wing and ends at the far low right side of the shield.

No NGC AU53 with CAC approval has ever traded at auction.

For the money, a scarce piece and a good value.

CAC has approved just this one example in AU53 with three finer.
