Description & Analysis

The 1846 proof silver dollar is a little more often seen than preceding dates, though it is hardly a common coin. Osburn and Cushing estimated that 35 or so were made, with perhaps 25 surviving. In any case, gems are quite rare, with most examples of this date being slightly mishandled.

Only one die marriage has been confirmed, this featuring the diehard (pardon the pun) reverse die of 1840. The obverse displays a repunched date, the first impression being well below its ideal position. Though the erroneous date was mostly polished away, it remains partially visible. A second obverse die has been reported, but this has been confirmed, and it may just be a later die state of the same obverse without any doubling of the date remaining.

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.
