David Akers (1975/88):

This variety was struck during the latter half of 1842 and probably constituted approximately half of the 81,507 mintage for the year. The Large Date is of virtually the same rarity as the Small Date both in terms of total number of specimens available and in condition. Almost all known examples of this issue grade only VF or EF. A few AU pieces are also known but only the Grant Pierce coin was ever described as "Uncirculated". Since this variety was struck later in the year and proofs in the 1840's were usually struck in tiny numbers in the first few months of the year, no proofs of the Large Date were minted.

Gordon Wrubel: Quickfinder Notes: The large numeral variety is easily distinguished by its CROSSLET 4. The Small Date has smaller digits,that were used in 1840 and 1841, and a PLAIN 4. The Large Date scarce but is seen about twice as much as the Small Date. Both varieties are scarce in AU condition and rare in Mint State. In 2013, the Large Date population shows only five Mint State examples including one in MS-65. The Small Date population shows only three in Mint State the highest being an MS-63.
