Expert Comments

David Akers (1975/88): The 1850 is a scarce, but not a rare date. A fair number of VF and EF examples are around but AU specimens are rare and mint state ones are very rare. I have seen only three uncirculated examples and my notes indicate that they were all just average, bagmarked uncirculated specimens, not at all choice.Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: The Large Date has tall numerals. The flag stand of the 5 comes to a very sharp point that is rather close to the ball and in line with its left edge. The point of the 1 LINES UP with the point of the bust and its tip is CLOSE to the truncation. The Small Date utilizes a smaller logotype intended for the $5. denomination. The point of the 1 is well right of the point of bust and its tip is about 3X times more distant from the truncation than the Large Date 1. The flag stand of the 5 rather blunt and nearly touches the ball giving it a "closed" appearance. The Large Date is scarce but about 2 1/2 time more common than the Small Date. Both varieties are rare in Mint State. Not even a whisper of a Gem has been heard.
