MS62 1846-O Five Dollar, Ex: S.S. New York
Among the Finest Known

1846-O $5 MS62 NGC. Ex: S.S. New York. The 1846-O has limited availability in Uncirculated grades. This is one of the finest examples known, and only one piece has been graded higher (6/11). Probably no more than a half dozen pieces exist in MS60 or better. Undoubtedly since this was a recovery piece from the S.S. New York, that greatly contributed to the superior preservation of this coin's surfaces. Unlike most seen, this piece shows only a couple of shallow "pinscratches" on each side, defects that have a brightness that suggest to us they may have been from the recovery process. The striking details are well but not fully brought up, with only slight softness over the highest points of the design. Census: 1 in 62, 1 finer (5/11).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25TK, PCGS# 8230)
