1846-O $5.00 NGC AU50 CAC

This was a date that I used to see from time to time but, for some reason, the supply of decent 1846-O half eagles has dried up in recent years. I'm not sure if someone is hoarding these or if the popularity of New Orleans gold amongst collectors has dried-up the supply. The present example is the first 1846-O half eagle that I've offered in some time and it has nice medium orange-gold and greenish hues atop relatively choice surfaces. There have been just five APR's for 1846-O half eagles in AU50 in the last decade and the high water mark is $3,738 set by Heritage 1/06: 5159.

CAC has approved just this one 1846-O half eagle in AU50 with five finer.
