Description & Analysis

Consistently large mintages were the norm for cents by this time, and 1845 is a very common date. A fair number are known grading MS RB, though fully red examples are quite rare.

There are no naked-eye varieties for 1845, and only advanced specialists collect this date by die marriages. Scarce ones include N-1, -3, -7, -10 through -13 and -15. N-14 is the rarest variety, but it is a proof-only issue. N-5 (photos) is among the more common varieties.
