Description & Analysis

The 1846-D/D half eagle gets all the publicity but the normal mintmark variety is substantially scarcer, especially in high grades. In fact, it is ranked as the second rarest Dahlonega half eagle in higher grades. There are just a dozen or so pieces known in properly graded AU and two pieces in Uncirculated.
