Three Philadelphia eagles from the 1840′s–the 1844, 1845 and 1846–are issues which have become known for their scarcity. Of these three, the 1845 is the most available but it becomes very scarce in properly graded AU53 to AU55 and very rare in full Mint State.

This naturally toned example shows medium green-gold colors on both sides. As is typical for the issue, there are some abrasions in the fields with the most noticeable being a series of reeding marks on the reverse below the O in OF. There is luster on both sides and the overall appearance is pleasing for the date and grade.

No AU53 example of this date has sold at auction since Heritage 1/08: 4397 realized $2,070 over five years ago. Two NGC 53′s brought $2,185 and $2,070 in 2007 and 2004, respectively.

I regard this date as being among the most undervalued No Motto eagles from this mint.
