The 1846-O is one of the scarcer New Orleans eagles from this decade and it is seldom seen in grades above AU50 to AU53. It is an issue which suffers from eye appeal problems and it is typically seen either with bright, baggy surfaces or poor striking detail due to lapped dies.

This piece shows natural deep green-gold color on the obverse and reverse with some coppery hues at the date. The strike is uncommonly bold and this is clearly an early die state with full radial lines in the stars and clearly defined strands of hair and feathers. There are a few light old hairlines in the left obverse field which are hard to see without tilting the coin.

The last AU53 example of this date to sell at auction was offered in April 2009 and there are only three records for the 1846-O eagle in AU53 since the beginning of 2008.

A pleasing example of this scarce, underappreciated issue.
