Description & Analysis

The first silver dollars coined by the New Orleans Mint were the product of a single pair of dies. Most 1846-O dollars are found well worn, with Mint State examples being scarce and largely restricted to the lowest grades. The South embraced silver dollars as a circulating medium, and this popularity survived right through the Morgan series. In fact, examples of this issue are more scarce than their mintage suggests.

Typical of O-Mint coins, the 1846-O dollar frequently is found with weakly struck areas. Particularly problematic are the right hand stars, indicating that the dies were slightly out of parallel. The surfaces of Mint State coins vary from a lightly frosted texture to semi-prooflike.

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.
