The 1842 ten dollar coinage is divided between the Small Date and Large Date varieties (18,623 versus 62,884 pieces, respectively), and the Small Date is by far the scarcer issue overall. Moreover, while both issues are conditionally rare in Mint State, the Small Date variant is almost entirely limited to the MS60 and MS61 grades, while the Large Date is represented by a few pieces as fine as MS64 and MS65.
This Small Date coin is tied with just two others as the finest at NGC, while PCGS reports a coin each in MS62 and MS63.. The design elements are well-defined and each side shows satiny straw-gold luster with semiprooflike reflectivity in the fields. A bisecting die crack extends from the eagle's left (facing) wingtip, across the shield, toward the opposite border. Scattered abrasions define the grade.
NGC Price Guide Value is $19,000 (7/19)
