While designated by NGC as an “1846-O” this is, as are nearly all examples of this date, an 1846/”5″-O.

The 1846-O, while not highly regarded, is actually one of the scarcest No Motto eagles from this mint and it is seen about as often as such heralded dates as the 1849-O and the 1852-O. It is especially hard to find with natural color and clean surfaces.

This is a really pleasing coin for the date and grade with nice medium russet color and an absence of serious marks. The detail is better than usual for the issue and the eye appeal is excellent. I can’t recall having seen more than handful of 1846-O eagles in this grade range with natural color.

There have been three APR’s for NGC EF45′s in the last two years, ranging from a low of $1,293 to a high of $1,586. None of these were CAC approved and all were lower end, processed coins which paled in comparison to the present example.

A really attractive 1846-O and a great value for the New Orleans eagle collector.

CAC has approved two in this grade with five finer.
