1846 Liberty Eagle. AU-50 (NGC). Similar in overall rarity to the 1845, the 1846 is an elusive early date Eagle with a mintage of just 20,095 pieces. This khaki-gold example is peppered with small and moderate-size abrasions, none of which are really worthy of individual attention. Boldly defined in and around the centers, with light wear that is largely confined to the highpoints. Faint remnants of a prooflike finish are discernible at more direct angles.
