Description & Analysis

Despite the distinctiveness and comparatively low population of the 1850 Small Date eagle, this variety has not achieved the prominence of other alternative-size date variants. Both the Small Date and Large Date have had numerous appearances at auction, and it was not until the advent of certification that collectors realized the comparative scarcity of the Small Date version.
