Lot Description
1846-O $1 MS61 NGC. Although the New Orleans Mint opened in 1838, no silver dollars were struck at the facility until 1846. Despite its historical significance, the 1846-O was little-saved, and only a solitary example has been certified as MS65 with none finer. Even in MS61, the 1846-O is decidedly rare. The present example offers rich golden-brown toning with glimpses of ocean-blue near the rims. The reverse has an unimportant rim ding at 6:30, but even thorough evaluation fails to locate any singularly mentionable field marks. Those marks that are present are inconspicuous beneath the pleasing patina. The strike is surprisingly sharp. Census: 7 in 61, 9 finer (2/08). From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars.
