Description & Analysis

Like the 1846 proof half dollar, this issue is more often seen than previous dates, yet it is still rare. Of the ten known proofs, one is the overdate variety. Another specimen is held permanently within the National Numismatic Collection, leaving very few available to collectors.

The reverse die is distinguished by diagonal filing lines seen within the eagle's shield.
