Description & Analysis

This common date in the Seated Liberty Dollar series was coined from just a single obverse die that was combined with two different reverses. The OC-1 marriage is more common than OC-2, but there are not enough interested specialists to prompt any premium value to these varieties. OC-1 does feature some repunching of numeral 1, but it slight enough to be missed on a worn coin.

Because so few dies produced so many coins, most examples display frosty luster. A few semi-prooflike coins may be encountered, these from fresh or repolished dies. The typical 1846 is well struck overall, though there may be some weakness on the usual trouble spots of the star centrals and the eagle's upper right wing. A fair number of choice Mint State coins have been certified, but gems are quite rare.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
