LOVELY AU50 1842-D SMALL DATE HALF EAGLE

Variety 7-E.

The 1842-D Small Date half eagle is much more available than its counterpart the 1842-D Large Date. The Small Date is sometimes seen in the lower to mid-AU grades but it is not often found with deep, natural coloration.

This fresh-to-the-market has some of the deepest natural coloration I can recall having seen on this issue. Both sides show a deep reddish-gold hue which is exactly "right" for an unmolested 1842-D Small Date half eagle. The detail is crisp and clear while the surfaces are very choice. This is a really outstanding coin.

No straight-graded AU50 example has sold at auction since 2006. A PCGS AU53 with CAC approval recently sold for $4,230 as Heritage 3/16: 5070; it was nice but not as much so as the present piece.

CAC has approved 2 in this grade with 9 finer.
