While not that scarce in lower grades, the 1846-O becomes hard to locate in the AU50 to AU53 range and it is legitimately rare in AU55 to AU58. There are probably not more than 10 to 12 known in this range and in Uncirculated, this date is nearly impossible to locate.

This fresh-to-the-market example likely never saw circulation but it is scuffy (as usual) and it shows weakness of strike at the centers which is typical for this specific die variety. The color is a wonderful deep orange-gold which appears totally natural and the eye appeal is excellent. A small rim bump is noted below the date but it doesn’t correspond to the reverse.

Very few auction records exist for AU58 examples of either the normal date 1846-O eagle or the so-called “overdate.” The last NGC AU58 example of the former sold for $7,344 as Heritage 4/12: 4978 while a not very choice NGC AU58 example of the latter sold for $6,328 as Heritage 3/10: 2411.

With higher grade pieces essentially unavailable, this appears to be just about the best quality 1846-O eagle which will be attainable for the serious New Orleans eagle collector.
