Cert #8604 60053374

Coin Number 63

This is the Small Date version of 1850 which is at least 2.5 times scarcer than the Large date variety. The Small Date version used the date punch intended for the half eagle, with the ball of the 5 nearly touching the upright, and the 1 is distant from the bust tip. In Choice grades as found here, this is an extreme rarity and this one is the finest and only MS-63 graded by either grading service. An exceptional and memorable example of this elusive issue.
