1846-D/D $2.50 PCGS EF40 CAC

Winter 7-K. Early die state with the remnants of the first mintmark punch, far to the left, clearly visible over the top of the 1 in the numerator. This variety has proven to be quite scarce as evidenced by the fact that only eight have sold at auction since 2004; an average of around one per year. The last EF40 example was Heritage 1/05: 8545, that sold for $2,560 in a market that was less attuned to the desirability of this issue. Nicely toned with greenish-gold and orange hues covering surfaces that are lightly marked and which still show a touch of luster. Certainly among the most affordable examples of this popular variety.

CAC has approved just this one coin in EF40 with two better for a total of three in all grades.
