Varieties of 1850 eagles are known with a Small Date and a Large Date. The Small Date is two to three times rarer and it is a very hard issue to locate in the higher AU grades. In Uncirculated, it is very rare with five or so known; all in the MS60 to MS61 range with the exception of a single PCGS MS63 which I haven’t ever seen.

This interesting coin combines a frosty orange-gold obverse with a semi-prooflike reverse which isn’t as extensively colored. The obverse is very choice with only a few marks while the reverse is more or less typical for the issue with some noticeable scuffs in the fields. The quality is still well above average for the date.

No PCGS AU58 1850 Small Date eagles have appeared at auction since March 2009. An NGC AU58 sold for $3,819 as Heritage 1/14: 6853.

If available, a nice quality Uncirculated 1850 Small Date eagle would cost in excess of $10,000 which makes this pleasing AU58 an excellent value, in my opinion.
