Description & Analysis

The cents of 1846 are plentiful in most grades, and this date is quite popular due to the three distinctive date styles used. The Small Date (photos of N-19) is the most often seen variety, while the Medium Date and Large Date cents are in the minority and carry modest premiums.

With its high mintage, 1846 produced some 26 die marriages. There are too many scarce or rare ones to list, but enough common ones exist to make collecting all three varieties affordable. The Medium Date is represented by just a single marriage, N-11, but it is likewise common.
