1842 Liberty Head Eagle. Large Date. EF-40 (PCGS). Pleasing honey-gold surfaces with the central design elements boldly to sharply defined. This the more frequently encountered date logotype of the 1842 eagle, the Large Date produced to the extent of 62,884 pieces while the Small Date has a mintage of just 18,623 coins. All early Liberty Head eagles are underrated issues, however, especially in grades above the middle reaches of the numismatic grading scale, as here. From our (Stacks) sale of the Andrew M. Watson Collection, October 1966, lot 1875. Lot tag included.
